LMPD, FBI to Discuss Dangers of Laser Pointers and Aircraft
Louisville Metro Police and other authorities will discuss the "growing problem" of people using laser pointers on aircraft, which LMPD says can lead to "catastrophic results."
LMPD pilots will be joined at a news conference Wednesday by representatives from the FBI and the University of Louisville Police, a news release said. Authorities will urge people to be aware of the dangers laser pointers pose to aircraft, and they'll also discuss a recent arrest.
