Federal investigators hold onto drone flown over Packer gameSubmitted: 08/23/2016
GREEN BAY - Federal investigators will be hanging onto a drone that flew over Lambeau Field during the Green Bay Packers game last week.

It's against the law to fly a drone over the stadium because of the potential for danger.

A Green Bay Police commander says a drone could malfunction and crash into the crowd.

Worse....it could contain a bomb.

Police tracked the drone to a house across the street from the stadium....and said the drone operator has been cooperative.

Police have been in contact with the Federal Aviation Administration, which will continue to investigate.

They don't think the operator meant any harm, but there could still be charges depending on what the FAA finds.
