WASHINGTON – U.S. Park police say they've cited a man found flying a drone in Washington's "No Drone Zone" a second time.
Police said in a statement that the drone was spotted over Anacostia Park in southeast Washington on Sunday evening and officers ordered the operator to land the drone.
Police say they issued 50-year-old Howard Solomon III of Washington, D.C., an $85 citation for operation of an unmanned aircraft.
Sgt. Anna Rose says Solomon was cited in October after a drone crash-landed near the White House. Solomon said then that he was photographing the Washington Monument. A message left Monday for Solomon wasn't immediately returned.
Rose says there's no indication of nefarious intent.
Drones are prohibited in national parks and within a 15-mile radius of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
