NYPD: Police helicopter has near miss with drone over Brooklyn

NEW YORK -- Police say a man has been arrested after an NYPD helicopter had a near miss with a drone in Brooklyn.

CBS New York reports it happened early Wednesday morning over Greene Avenue in Bushwick.

The chopper was helping to search for a missing person when police said the drone came within 50 feet of the aircraft. That's when the helicopter had to suddenly change course, police said.

Isaac Rosa, 34, was arrested for illegally operating the drone, which was equipped with a GoPro camera, police said. He's charged with reckless endangerment and obstructing governmental administration.
