The Montgomery County (Texas) Sheriff's Office had a big day planned. After becoming the first department in the country with its own aerial drone ($300,000!), they were ready for a nice photo op. And then the drone crashed into a SWAT team.
"[The] prototype drone was flying about 18-feet off the ground when it lost contact with the controller's console on the ground. It's designed to go into an auto shutdown mode...but when it was coming down the drone crashed into the SWAT team's armored vehicle."
It's no wonder we're not able to find a video of this spectacular publicity failure.
Good thing it didn't crash into the local Dunkin Donut shop. Woulda got a buncha cops with one one round. Heh.
