WATCH: Police use helicopter to break up tailgate party

Pennsylvania State Police buzzed a Penn State tailgate crowd with the hopes of dispersing them after earlier unruly behaviour.

Several injuries were reported by flying debris and the Federal Aviation Administration is currently investigating.

Penn State Police and Public Safety defended its actions. The helicopter "was deployed as another tool to compel the group to disperse and curb dangerous and unruly behavior. Following the use of the helicopter, the dangerous behaviors dissipated."
