TOWSON, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland say they arrested a man who shined a laser pointer at one of their helicopters. Baltimore County police said in a news release Monday the alleged incident happened last month in Essex, Maryland. Police say officers were flying the helicopter during an unrelated investigation when Brandon Dunevant stood on a road and shined the laser pointer through the aircraft’s cockpit. The release says he has been charged with pointing a laser pointer at an aircraft. Dunevant has been booked into a detention center with no bail. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
