Man Arrested for Flying Drone Into Empire State Building

NEW YORK (AP) -

A man was arrested after he apparently lost control of a small drone that crashed into the Empire State Building on Thursday night.

The drone hit the 40th floor of the 1,454-foot landmark skyscraper and then fell to a 35th-floor landing. The 29-year-old man went to the Manhattan building’s security to request his drone back, but the guards called police.

The man was arrested at the scene on charges of reckless endangerment and aviation in and over the city. His name was not immediately released.
