Maybe They Should Have Had DoJ Prepare a Legal Memo First ...

Per the New York Daily News:

Two Manhattan men were arrested early Monday after they piloted a drone close to the George Washington Bridge and nearly struck an NYPD helicopter, police sources said.

Some other papers' coverage (yes, I'm looking at you, Post) try to make it sound like the chopper was just minding its own business and got buzzed by the drone. The Daily News version is more along the lines of the chopper "observing"/approaching the drone and getting in its flight path.

The cops claim the drone was flying at 2,000 feet. The model in question allegedly tops out at 300 feet.
