A 14-year-old boy has been arrested for allegedly pointing a powerful laser at a Boeing 737 landing at Los Angeles International Airport, police said Wednesday.
Pilots pinpointed the laser’s origin about 8 p.m. Tuesday and called police, who went to the boy’s home near Avalon Boulevard and East 161st Street in South Los Angeles, said Sgt. William Dougherty of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Police arrived by helicopter, and the boy pointed the green laser at the chopper as it flew in, Dougherty said. The boy was arrested and held in juvenile custody.
