Man Must Pay Fine in Grand Prismatic Spring Drone Case

Posted: Updated:
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK -

Another drone case in Yellowstone Park is now over.

A judge order a Dutch man to pay more than $3,000 for crashing a drone into Grand Prismatic Spring.

It happened in August, and Al Nash, a spokesperson for the park, says park rangers have not been able to recover the drone because they're not sure where it is.

They don't want to try to retrieve it until they know exactly where to look so as not to cause further damage to a delicate natural beauty.

Recently, a 37-year-old German man pled guilty to a drone that crashed into Yellowstone Lake and was banned from the park for a year as part of his plea deal.
