Hollywood cops and prosecutors want to go after a guy who flew a drone over the Hollywood police dept., but we’ve learned they’re stumped.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … several people have become a thorn in the side of the LAPD — trying to expose what they claim are police misdeeds. One of them flew a drone over the Hollywood Division Tuesday afternoon, shooting video of the parking lot with prisoners and undercover officers.
The parking lot is shielded by a wall for security reasons — so it’s not visible from the street.
We’re told police detectives and lawyers from the L.A. County D.A. and the L.A. City Attorney had a meeting to figure out what criminal laws might have been violated, but they concluded as long as the drone flies lower than 400 feet … there’s nothing they can do. Anything above is covered by the FAA.
One law enforcement source tells TMZ … they’re worried about paparazzi flying over the backyards of celebs and shooting them by the pool or doing various activities.
