The Secret Service stopped a man who briefly flew a drone near the president’s motorcade Monday as the president and his friends were returning from golf at the Mid-Pacific Country Club.
News media pool video, shows the presidential motorcade leaving, followed by what appears to be an agent talking to the man and the drone on a bench next to him. The pool video continues with a brief glimpse of the president’s golf game.
In a written statement, the Secret Service said the man was “completely unaware that the Presidential motorcade would be transiting the area of operation and immediately complied with law enforcement requests to cease and desist. No charges were filed.”
The FAA issued flight restrictions for the area around Kailua, where the president is staying during his vacation, that includes no flying of drones.
