This handout photo provided by the US Secret Service shows the drone that crashed onto the White House grounds in Washington, Monday, Jan. 26, 2015. An intelligence agency employee whose drone crashed on the White House lawn earlier this year won't face criminal charges, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington announced Wednesday. Shawn Usman, who works for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, was piloting the borrowed drone in downtown Washington early on Jan. 26 when he lost control of it. Prosecutors said Usman, who had borrowed the drone from a friend, tried to regain control of the aircraft while it was flying westward and climbed to about 100 feet at about 3 a.m. (AP Photo/US Secret Service)
