Claim: Los Angeles Police Drone Gets Knocked Out of the Sky by LA Kings Fans


Drone Knocked down at Staples Center During LA Kings Stanley victory celebration.

Los Angeles Police Department riot police were called in to break up a disturbance outside the Staples arena following the LA King’s victory over the New York Rangers.

A drone was hit by a flying jacket, which caused it to lose altitude. The drone was then grabbed by outreaching hands in the crowd.

Los Angeles police have not confirmed that the drone was theirs. Recent news articles have reported that LAPD received two Draganflyer X6 drones, which to not look like the drone that was knocked out of the sky with a jacket.

The Draganflyer looks more like a four-legged spider.

The drone knocked to the ground looks more like a DJI Phantom drone …

Of course it’s possible LAPD could have deployed a DJI Phantom 2.
