What happens when you point a laser at a police helicopter? They find you, zoom up, and things basically turn into a game of Call of Duty.
The incident in the video takes place in the Canadian city of Vaughan in Ontario. Officers quickly arrived on the scene and charged a young man after he pointed a laser at a police helicopter.
In the United States, interfering with the operation of any aircraft by pointing a laser at it is considered a felony. It might seem like a harmless action, but it blinds the pilot and can cause accidents. Just don’t do it.
