US: Kentucky student arrested in dorm for endangering police helicopter

A 19-year-old student was arrested in his University of Louisville dorm room, for illuminating a police helicopter three times on October 21 2012. The pilot turned the helicopter away from the light, then was able to fly to the source location. Jeffry Ledington was charged with two felony counts of wanton endangerment.

The laser was described as “about 10 inches long and about as big around as a thumb.”
