DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Both the Dallas Police Department and Federal Aviation Administration are talking to the owner of a five-foot drone that crashed near Dallas Love Field.
Witnesses reported to police that they watched the unmanned aircraft, described as an airplane wing with a camera attached, fall from the sky.
Dallas police took custody of the drone and talked to its owner when he came forward to claim the property. Police have not identified his name.
Police say the area where the drone crashed was inside controlled airspace, which requires the operators of all aircraft must contact air traffic controllers.
The FAA will determine if any federal laws were broken and if charges will be filed.
