BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A 30-year-old Sykesville man was arrested after authorities say he pointed a green laser at a Maryland State Police helicopter eight times early Monday morning.
Connor Grant Brown faces charges of reckless endangerment, obstructing and hindering, and shining a laser pointer at an aircraft.
Brown could also be facing charges from the FBI.
“These laser beams can really be catastrophic,” said MSP spokeswoman Elena Russo.
The MSP Trooper 3 helicopter was up in the sky at 1 a.m. Monday. They were assisting the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office with an investigation in the 800 block of Klees Mills Rd. in Westminster.
