If the drone was being flown manually by an operator watching through a first-person video, the bright lights from laser dazzler might have blinded the camera, causing the operator to lose control. Alternatively, “the lasers beam have the ability to interfere with [infrared] landing sensors,” as well as the downward-facing cameras that detect obstacles below, “forcing a landing or uncontrolled drone behavior,” Williams said.

There is a third possibility: that the heat from the laser dazzler was enough to melt internal wiring or cause the battery to give out.
