WA man allegedly pointed laser at cops

A 54 year old man could face up to seven years in jail after he allegedly shone a bright blue laser pointer into a police helicopter in Perth.

About 11.45pm on Friday, the helicopter crew was able to direct police ground resources to an address at Oakford where the man was arrested and a laser pointer seized.

The man has been charged with causing fear or alarm to the driver or pilot of a conveyance and will appear in court in July.
