DENVER (CBS4) – A man has been arrested by the FBI on charges that he pointed a laser at Denver Police Department’s helicopter. Such an action could blind a pilot.
Nathan James Finneman, 26, of Denver turned himself in Thursday morning after being identified. He is said to have pointed the laser at the police helicopter while it was in operation three different times in April 2013.
The Denver police helicopter, which is called Air1, has a variety of equipment to spot activity on the ground. That includes infrared and other forms of night vision, and it has the capability to zoom in very tightly.
