Denham Springs councilmen eye limit for drone usage
DENHAM SPRINGS- City councilmen in Denham Springs are hustling to pass a new ordinance prohibiting drones from flying over private property in time for the gift-giving season.
Councilman Jeff Wesley says the primary concern is that the small, unmanned craft can carry cameras and take photos from the sky.
Remote-controlled aircraft have been a subject of discussion across the country and the state recently.
Earlier this year, a drone crashed into the University of Kentucky stadium before a game featuring the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and an Ascension Parish man shot down a craft owned by his neighbor because his wife thought it was watching her.
