It wasn’t Joe Biden after all.

The white House drone mystery has been solved:

It was 42 degrees and raining lightly around 3 a.m. on Monday when an inebriated off-duty employee for a government intelligence agency decided it was a good time to fly his friend’s drone, a 2-foot-by-2-foot “quadcopter” that sells for hundreds of dollars and is popular among hobbyists.

But officials say the plan was foiled, perhaps by wind or a tree, when the employee — who has not been named by the Secret Service or charged with a crime — lost control of the drone as he operated it from an apartment just blocks from the White House.
[…]
In the process of what officials describe as nothing more than a drunken misadventure, the employee managed to highlight another vulnerability in the protective shield that the Secret Service erects around the White House complex.

The Chuck Yeager of toy quad-copter pilots works for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. Rumor has it that he’s a former GSA party planner.

The Secret Service has responded to fence-jumping incidents by adding layers of fence horizontally, and now they’ll have to extend vertically a half mile or so.

Sen. Chuck Schumer smells a regulatory opportunity:

For people like Schumer, the words “long overdo” and “regulations” are redundant.
