Someone Got Struck By A Drone Outside Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday Afternoon

Bryant-Denny Stadium reportedly played witness to a drone attack this past Saturday. 

According to a report by the Tuscaloosa News, the Tuscaloosa Police is investigating a man whom they believe to be responsible for the drone that struck a fan outside Alabama's football stadium Saturday afternoon. The person was struck at about 2:30 p.m. C.T. Alabama and Missisippi State kicked off in Bryant-Denny Stadium at about the same time. 

The Tuscaloosa Police Department released two photos of the man they believe to have been operating the drone. He's a "a Tuscaloosa native who now lives out of state."

From the report: 

The white Phantom Drone was recovered from a parking lot on 12th Avenue near Bryant Drive at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, right around kickoff of the University of Alabama game against Mississippi State.

It had struck a man as it descended from the sky, Blankley said.

Investigators intend to contact the man soon, he said Wednesday afternoon. The victim did not stick around or speak with police. The drone operator could be charged with reckless endangerment.

Perhaps the drone's owner is actually a Florida State fan intending on wrecking Alabama's season. Nick Saban should be on high alert.
