When I was a kid we used to call drones "RC Toys". Maybe if we carried on calling them toys then people wouldn't piss in their pants when theres a report of one being found on a lawn.
Questions like what if it had a camera or explosives are ridiculous. You sound like little girls. Strap your head back on and pay attention. You're being manipulated. If it was a true threat, you wouldn't hear about it

Any wireless device like an RC drone should be FCC part 15 compliant meaning it must not emit harmful interference and It MUST ACCEPT harmful interference, which means it's got to be a cinch to jam for the secret service if its any consumer brand.
I'm in agreement with the previous poster who suggested it probably was disabled by a jammer of sorts rendering it inoperable and crashing it on the lawn.
