ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Two people have been arrested for allegedly flying a drone over Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor during the Wolverines’ football season opener against Middle Tennessee State.
The drone was reported about 10:17 p.m. Saturday. University Deputy Police Chief Melissa Overton said Thursday that the individuals arrested are not students at the school.
The suspects face misdemeanor university ordinance and Federal Aviation Administration violations. Overton did not release their names and said in an email that both were released pending the authorization of warrants.
The case remains under investigation. Overton said there was no threat to the community.
Richard Sheridan, who was a spectator at the game, told The Detroit News that he saw the drone hover over the stadium’s south end before flying away.
