The attorney representing the man accused of crashing a drone into Commonwealth Stadium is confident that his client will be found not guilty of second-degree wanton endangerment. A not guilty please was entered on behalf of University of Kentucky law student Peyton Wilson, 24, at his arraignment Tuesday.
“At worst, what happened here is a mistake,” attorney Luke Morgan said. “We do not think the government should criminalize mistakes.”
Morgan said that Wilson went to law enforcement officials after the accident and that he was being punished for that.
There are no regulations on drone flight, Morgan said.
