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 Prince William County, Virginia, a woman exited a 7-Eleven convenience store when two men, one with a handgun, approached and demanded her vehicle. According to the Associated Press, police say the woman struck one man with her bag before her 22-year-old daughter threw her hot chocolate toward both men, who then fled on foot.
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. The teller gave $500 cash to the man. But, it didn’t take long for detectives to find him after discovering the note he left at the bank was written on the back of his girlfriend’s pay stub. They went to the girlfriend’s home address and caught the man as he was trying to leave.
