Republican trio proposes police drone ban in Minnesota

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

Three Republican state senators introduced legislation Thursday that would ban police from using remotely-piloted drones in Minnesota for evidence gathering.

The law would make an exception for cases of terrorism investigations, when a warrant has been obtained, or when there is imminent danger to life, property or ability to apprehend a suspect.

The bill would allow citizens to file a lawsuit against police agencies for violating the restrictions, and would force drone-obtained evidence to be thrown out from any trial.

At least a dozen states are considering bans or restrictions on the use of drones.
