VIDEO: Aerial Drone Used to Collar DWI Suspects in North Dakota

The Grand Forks County (N.D.) Sheriff's Office says it deployed an aerial drone to help catch some criminals on the run. They say it is the first time a drone has been used by law enforcement to conduct a mission at night.  

Matthew Dalbey of Emerado, Cole Schmidt of Larimore, and Sawyer Smith of Hatton, North Dakota, are facing alcohol and fleeing-related charges. There's also a fourth suspect authorities are not identifying. Dalbey is charged with DUI, reckless driving, minor in possession and refusing to halt. Schmidt is charged with minor in consumption and refusing to halt. Smith is charged with refusing to halt.

The sheriff's office used a drone after the men ran into a field during a traffic stop just after 2:15 a.m. on September 28. Sheriff's deputies tried pulling over a pickup in rural Larimore when the four people ran from the scene. After a K-9 was unable to locate the suspects, the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) team was contacted, Valley News Live reports.
