NYC Teacher Arrested After Drone Crashes US Open (Video)
Daniel Verry probably thought it would be hilarious to fly his drone over Arthur Ashe Stadium during Thursday night’s second-round action at the US Open. Well he’s probably not laughing anymore after his drone crashed into the seats, leading to his arrest for reckless endangerment and operating a drone in a New York City public park outside of a prescribed area early.
The 26-year-old teacher was found at a Marina across from Citi Field following the incident. He was arrested, but later released with a ticket to appear in court on September 16.
Thankfully, no one was injured when the drone crashed into the stands during a match between Flavia Pennetta and Monica Niculescu.
