Police drones go farther than ever before in California pilot
A woman in a car was ramming a man on a motorcycle, chasing him down the streets of Chula Vista, California. A police drone flew after them, broadcasting a live video feed to officers' smartphones. All officers in the department had been out on other high-priority calls when they received the report of two people fighting -- so they deployed their newest emergency response tool. Thanks to the footage from the drone, when officers arrived on scene, they knew exactly where to find the woman and man, and what had happened moments beforehand.
