Man allegedly points laser at police helicopter

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A Lexington man has been arrested after allegedly pointing a laser at a police helicopter.

Police told WKYT-TV that 50-year-old Steven French is charged with wanton endangerment.

The laser hit the helicopter's cockpit three times Saturday night before officers on the ground determined where it was coming from.

Police say French was working as a security guard at a construction site and told them he got bored and wanted to test the range of the laser site on his gun.

It was unclear whether French has an attorney.
