Phoenix News Chopper Hit with Laser Beam

A Phoenix news helicopter was the victim of a dangerous prank last week as someone shot a bright laser beam into its cockpit (video above).

Police are currently investigating the incident and have yet to identify the culprit. According to The Arizona Republic, local police searched door-to-door last week in the area where the beam originated.

The helicopter shoots footage for multiple Phoenix stations, including CBS-affiliate KPHO and independent station KTVK.

“The message here is that if you want to engage in this kind of dangerous and irresponsible behavior, you can get arrested,” said a spokesman with the Federal Aviation Administration.
