Unprecedented: Man Sent to Jail After Drone Used in His ArrestFirst American to serve time following an arrest made possible by a domestic drone.
Brossart's defense attorney, Bruce Quick, attempted to make the case that the use of the drone was unlawful on the grounds that police did not have judicial approval or a warrant to use the machine.

A federal judge disagreed in 2012 after it concluded that the use of the drone "appeared to have no bearing on these charges being contested here," and yesterday a jury upheld the judge's decision, finding Brossart guilty of terrorizing police.

Also on Tuesday, the Electronic Frontier Foundation revealed that the Customs and Border Patrol had lent out its predator drones 700 times between 2010 and 2012 to a number of different agencies, including Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and the Drug Enforcement Agency, among other state and local law enforcement groups.

However, the Brossart case remains the only one thus far in which law enforcement has admitted to using a drone.
