A man has come forward to say he was responsible for the drone that crashed early Monday on the White House grounds.
A US official said the man made contact with the Secret Service after reports of the crash spread in the media. The man told the Secret
Service that he was using the drone recreationally and didn't mean to fly it over the White House.
The official said the operator of the drone is a Washington resident and that he's cooperating with investigators. Secret Service agents have begun interviewing other people to corroborate the man's story. The official said investigators don't currently have any reason to doubt the man's story.
