KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A drone flew near the president’s motorcade as it left Kailua for Alan Wong's on Monday evening.

The drone zipped next to the motorcade for about three seconds, a pool reporter said.

Pool reports said Secret Service agents approached the man operating the drone and the device was brought down shortly afterward.

The motorcade’s route did not change and no arrests were made.

The Secret Service says the man had no idea that the president's motorcade would be passing by when he launched the drone.

Before the president arrived, the FAA issued strict flight restrictions for Oahu that included drones.
