Friends don't let friends fly tiny helicopters drunk.
With the wide range of models and increasingly affordable pricing, drone flying has become an extremely fun hobby for many. However, as I always tell my kids, "with great fun comes great responsibility," which is probably why they don't like talking to me.
I'm not wrong though, and to prove it we have the arrest of a 56-year-old man who became the first in his prefecture to get busted for violating the newly enacted law against
flying a drone while intoxicated.
The incident occurred on 12 June in Toyota City, Aichi Prefecture, when the suspect consumed eight cans of beer between the hours of 7 a.m. and noon. Interestingly
enough, all that morning drinking motivated the suspect to start cleaning his room.
