Man Arrested For Pointing Laser At Helicopter

Last updated on Friday, July 23, 2010

(NORTH VERNON, IN) - An 18-year-old North Vernon man faces charges for allegedly pointing a laser at an aircraft.

An Indiana State Police Sergeant and helicopter pilot were flying back to Indianapolis after a late night aerial search in Clark County when they noticed a green light on the door of the helicopter.

Suspecting the light to be light from a fixed wing aircraft, they took evasive action to avoid a mid-air collision.

State police say it's important for the public to realize that pointing a laser at a person or vehicle is extremely dangerous and will be taken seriously by law enforcement.
