In New Jersey, better think before taking that drink before flying a drone. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed a law making it illegal to fly an unmanned drone aircraft after too many drinks, a spokesman said on the Republican’s last day in office. The law prohibits flying a drone with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher, the same as for driving a vehicle, or while drugged. Violators face up to six months in jail, a $1,000 fine or both. The measure also bars flying a drone near a prison or in pursuit of wildlife.

In Seymour, Connecticut, a man walked into a bank and handed the teller a note. “This is a robbery, give me 5,000 nobody gets shot,” it read, according to the Valley Independent.

They went to the girlfriend’s home address and caught the man as he was trying to leave.
