    AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- The Augusta Committee votes to keep drones on the ground during Masters week for a second year in a row.

    Just like in 2015, if you cannot fly a drone in near schools, hospitals, neighborhoods, or open air sporting events. If you are caught, you could face 60 days in jail or $1,000 fine for navigating over populated areas without permission.

    City leaders put off voting on a more permanent ordinance until state legislation is passed.

    I don't see Augusta ever permitting drones. My father in law tried to peak over the outer fence to take a picture and was ran off by security almost instantly. lol Would be beautiful pics/video though
