He was found guilty by a judge during a bench trial, but quickly appealed it, and stood in front of a jury more than a year later, where he was then found not guilty.

Steven Mitchell designs and builds drones from scratch. He builds them for businesses and companies like fire departments who then use the drones to examine fire scenes.

But there are certain places Mitchell can't fly his drone and that includes a 5 mile radius of Charlotte Douglas international Airport and the Panthers Stadium

The FAA and the Charlotte Police Department are investigating a drone that was caught flying above the Panthers Kansas City Chiefs game

Mitchell says whoever was flying it probably wanted an aerial shot of the stadium but says it's people like that who ruin it for the professionals

These drones come equipped with go pro cameras and in-flight Camera so Steven can see exactly what the drone is looking at at all times

He says the technology has gotten quite advanced over the years and hopes people keep playing by the rules so these drones can continue to fly.
