Man detained for flying toy drone near White House

A man was detained Thursday for flying a foot-wide toy quadcopter drone above Lafayette Park near the White House. Police inspected the craft and deemed it to be safe, but Park Police said the man still would be charged with violating a federal order. A day earlier, the Federal Aviation Administration announced a campaign to remind the public that the airspace within a 15-mile radius of Reagan National Airport is a "No Drone Zone." A month ago, a Florida man caused a security scare by flying a gyrocopter onto the lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
