Police arrest 4 after laser pointed at helicopter

PHOENIX -- Phoenix police said they've arrested two men and two women after a laser beam was pointed at a police helicopter.

According to police, a red laser beam was directed at a patrolling police helicopter Sunday night, temporarily blocking the vision of the pilot and the observer.

Police said the helicopter crew was able to direct officers on the ground to a midtown apartment complex, where police found a handgun with a laser attachment.

Officers arrested two men for investigation of endangerment and two women for investigation of obstructing government operations.

Police said it's dangerous to point a laser at an aircraft because it could temporarily blind the pilot, placing both the aircraft's occupants and people on the ground in danger.
