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.

Washington State Patrol pilots targeted with laser

In a wake of recent stories about how airlines are being targeted with laser pointers, recent footage by Washington State Patrol shows how blinding a laser pointer can be to a pilot even at an altitude of 2,000 feet. 

On January 29, Troopers in a WSP airplane were targeted with a laser pointer in the Fife area.  The WSP airplane was initially hit with a green laser and the Tactical Flight Officer (TFO) was able to turn the airplane's Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) camera on the area the laser came from.  The suspect soon tried it again, and the TFO was able to identify the individual's location.  The airplane stayed on location over the individual's residence until Pierce County Deputies were able to arrive on scene.
