A man charged with crashing a drone into the Empire State Building has apparently tweeted that a policeman had told him it was “fine” to fly there.
Police say a drone hit the New York skyscraper’s 40th floor and then fell on to a ledge five levels lower.
Sean Riddle was charged with reckless endangerment and illegal navigation of an aircraft in and over the city.
The tweet, from a Twitter account in his name, also blames a year-old news article for its misleading information.
