NEW YORK – The TSA issued a statement on Wednesday denying it uses drones.

A drone was spotted outside the Metrodome in Minneapolis during Sunday’s Vikings game versus the Green Bay Packers.

TSA agents were also on duty outside of the stadium.  A special division called VIPR (Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response) was there to conduct searches.

North St. Paul attorney Nathan M. Hansen took photographs of the drone and the TSA agents and posted them to his twitter feed.  Several blogs picked up the report, causing the TSA to respond.

TSA’s official blogger Bob Burns posted a message saying the agency does not use drones but did not respond to questions about the TSA employees outside of the stadium.

Full statement from the TSA:

“After a drone was spotted at a Vikings game, rumors have been “flying” around that it was a TSA drone. I just wanted to take this quick opportunity to say that TSA does not use drones. I have been accused of “droning” on and on before, but other than that, we’re drone free.”
