TALLAHASSEE, Fla., April 26 (UPI) — Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed into law a ban on the use of drones by law enforcement agencies without a warrant from a judge.

The legislation, signed Thursday, says camera-carrying surveillance drones can only be used in cases of "imminent danger to life or serious damage to property" or when "credible intelligence" from the federal Department of Homeland Security points to "a high risk of a terrorist attack."
