FAA Grounds University Of Michigan's Football Delivery Drone

*Referee whistle* The FAA threw a flag on the play for grandstanding. The drone has been ejected from the game.

"The FAA promotes voluntary compliance by educating UAS operators about how they can operate safely under current regulations and laws," the agency said today in an e-mailed statement.
