In a statement, the Secret Service said the individual was seen flying the Parrot Bebop device in Lafayette Park at an altitude of about 100 feet (35 meters). He was detained by uniformed Secret Service officers as the park — filled at lunch hour on a sunny spring day — was swiftly evacuated and the White House was briefly put on lockdown. “As a precaution, the small UAV was swept and declared safe,” said the Secret Service, which released a photo of the red quadracopter — a popular consumer model with a video camera built in.
