Security grounded a drone flying over Falcons practice

Recommended Posts


As the Falcons practiced at Rice University before Super Bowl LI last week, security had an issue to deal with: Someone flew a drone overhead.

“Security officers grounded a drone that was sent airborne by one of the residents in the neighborhood on Thursday,” wrote Peter King, who was selected to be the only reporter present for the Falcons’ practices last week.

It’s unclear exactly how the security officers grounded the drone, but it’s easy to see why the Falcons wouldn’t want a drone flying overhead, as it could be used to film them. The Patriots, with their Spygate history, will of course be accused by some conspiracy theorists of being behind the drone, but King’s report makes clear that it was just a person who lives in the residential area near Rice’s practice facilities.

For security purposes during the Super Bowl, drones are not allowed within 35 miles of NRG Stadium today from 4 p.m. to midnight.
