A man has been hit with federal charges, after allegedly admitting that he pointed a laser pointer at a police helicopter at LaGuardia Airport.
Bomb-sniffing dogs and state troopers are on hand. There are officers on horseback and motorcycle along the route and police helicopters are also keeping an eye on things from the sky.
A Long Island man was out of jail on $10,000 bond Wednesday, after being charged with aiming a laser pointer at two aircraft.
Charges may soon be lodged against a Long Island teen accused of aiming a laser into the cockpit of a police helicopter. And now the FBI wants to know if the youth has pulled the dangerous stunt before.
