(Newser) – As is traditional after a sports team snags a championship, LA Kings fans went a little crazy Friday night after the Kings won the Stanley Cup—and they may have destroyed an LAPD drone in the process. Business Insider notes that multiple videos online appear to show the incident and its aftermath: In one, a drone hovering over the Staples Center crowd is knocked to the ground by a thrown shoe; in another, though the drone is not seen, the crowd can be heard chanting, "We got the drone!" and the person who uploaded the video describes it as an LAPD drone. Riot police were ultimately called to break up the "melee," the Los Angeles Times reports. The LAPD has not confirmed the drone belonged to the department.
