Vermont Police Investigate Laser Pointed At Aircraft
Vermont State Police are investigating who pointed a laser at an aircraft in Charlotte.
Police say the incident happened Wednesday evening about a mile south of Shelburne Air Park Road.
Troopers responded but did not find anything.
The Federal Aviation Administration says aiming a laser at an aircraft is a serious safety risk and a federal crime. Laser beams can temporarily blind pilots.
Police say violators face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
