The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is going after an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) photography company in Cleveland after it operated an unmanned aircraft over the demolition of a bridge.

NewsChannel5 reports that on July 12, Cleveland Aerial Media ‘violated a temporary flight restriction’ after they captured aerial footage of the Innerbelt Bridge and shared it online.

The FAA then sent a letter to the company to inform them that they were being investigated.

Although co-owner John Ellenberger told the news agency that the company is taking the matter “very seriously,” he stresses that UAVs are bringing jobs to Ohio, “the birthplace of aviation.”
