Drone Arrest - Legal or Not?

In follow up to a story first reported here in mid-December (See: North Dakota: First Known Use of a Drone During the Arrest of a U.S. Citizen), a North Dakota man has decided to challenge the legality of his arrest because it involved the use of a drone.  The arrest, which took place outside the tiny City of Lakota, ND, has recently started to attract the attention of scholars and national news media.  In that regard, find below two stories for your consideration:


Comment:  In my opinion, the CBS news piece is well worth the 7:22 it takes to watch it.  After using the case in North Dakota as the initial focal point, it then explores the idea that, like it or not, the technology is here, but the policies are not.  Sound familiar?
