HAWAII (WABC) -- Secret Service stopped a man from flying a drone close to President Obama's motorcade while he was on vacation in Hawaii.

The drone flew adjacent to President Obama's motorcade briefly on Monday, before agents forced the man to bring it down.

The President went on to play a round of golf without incident.

The Secret Service released a statement Monday night, saying:

"The Secret Service is aware of this incident. The subject was completely unaware that the Presidential motorcade would be transiting the area of operation and immediately complied with law enforcement requests to cease and desist. No charges were filed. The motorcade proceeded without further incident."
