ANN ARBOR — Two people have been arrested for flying a drone over Michigan Stadium.

The drone was reported at about 10:17 p.m. on Aug. 31 during the Wolverine's football opener against Middle Tennessee State.

University Deputy Police Chief Melissa Overton said last week that the individuals arrested are not students at the school.

The arrests were made after the report. The suspects face misdemeanor university ordinance and Federal Aviation Administration violations.

Overton did not release their names and said in an email that both were released pending the authorization of warrants.

The case remains under investigation. Overton said there was no threat to the community.

Game spectator Richard Sheridan told The Detroit News that he saw the drone hover over the stadium's south end before flying away.
