Drone Spotted at Stadium During Phillies Game

Drone Spotted at Stadium During Phillies Game
Police questioned the operator of a drone that appeared above Citizens Bank Park during a game on Sunday. The team’s director of security, Sal DeAngelis, said the security staff spotted the drone flying briefly above the third-base gate during the Phillies home game. DeAngelis said it was unclear how high the drone went but it was easily visible to security personnel. He said it did not reach airspace over the field or disrupt the game. Security and Philadelphia police easily located the drone operator outside the stadium. Drone sightings have become increasingly common and worrisome over stadiums, especially during college and NFL games. The man could face a Federal Aviation Administration fine. FAA rules bar flying drones below 3,000 feet and within three miles of baseball or football stadiums with a seating capacity of at least 30,000.
