PHOENIX — Police said they arrested a man for pointing a laser light at a
Phoenix police helicopter flying over an apartment complex.
Police said that 21-year-old Antonio Rodriguez was jailed on suspicion of two
counts of endangerment.
The two officers aboard the helicopter late Tuesday
night spotted the suspect and led police on the ground to the apartment complex, where Rodriguez was found.
It’s the second instance this month of citizens pointing laser beams at law enforcement helicopters. Two men and two women were arrested last week at a midtown apartment complex for the same offense.
