2 people arrested for pointing laser at passing cars

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - The Washington State Patrol is asking anyone who may have had a green laser pointed at them while driving on I-90 to contact them. The request comes after a series of lasing incidents that occurred around 7:30 Tuesday night near I-90 and Argonne road.

In each of the lasing incidents, the green laser beam was reported to have come from a white Chevy pickup truck with two people inside. The suspects were said to be shining the beam at other drivers while driving down the interstate. Some drivers were 'lighted up' from behind, others from the side.

WSP says they have two suspects in custody, but have only identified one victim. If you believe you had a laser pointed at your vehicle, you can call the WSP at 509-227-6560.
