Please add some detail. Linking and running is bad.

Fixed.

A failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.

Could have been worse.

Isn't the FAA looking into this? I get Penn State police wanted to break up a tailgate party that was getting a little out of hand, but they clearly didn't think this through.

It's all fun and games until the wind knocks over a lit grill and ignites a fire

This was in the skull session yesterday.  It's got some run on ESPN and other news sites now.  Pretty ridiculous and very dangerous.  Seems they broke all kinds of safety regulations and guidelines doing this.  They are trying to hide behind the well the tailgaters started it by "assaulting" us argument, but videos of that are not so conclusive.  Either way, it is like my 6 year old punching his brother because he was annoying him.  Doesn't make it right, police.

That pilot should at the very least have his licensed suspended, if not permanently revoked. His actions were reckless and beyond stupid.

For those wondering what the big deal is:

FAA regulations on minimum safe altitudes for aircraft say pilots should remain at least 1,000 feet (304 meters) above congested areas or above open-air assemblies. Although helicopters can be flown lower if it can be done safely and in compliance with FAA routes and altitudes. At any event, pilots must remain high enough to be able to land without harming people or property if a power unit fails.

Mods, didn't know this was in the skully. Please delete at your convenience.

Ehh, it kind of deserves its own thread.  I'm mildly interested to see if anything more comes out of it.  The Penn State Police statement on the matter was pretty lame, and as we all know, people like stuff to be mad about on twitter.
