Not seeing a need to use bullets?

If the problem drone can be seen clearly enough to shoot it, then why don't the authorities just grab some drones themselves (from any kids store!) and ram those into the thing?

Sure, kids store drones are unlikely to be strong. But several (say 10) of the things should do the trick.

If they can't find someone with the required piloting skills... ask some kids. Pretty sure they'll be up for it. :)
