Woman jailed for pointing laser beam at plane 

A Los Angeles County woman is behind bars for allegedly pointing a laser beam at an airliner and a sheriff’s helicopter. Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker said Sunday that 27-year-old Kimberly Rogers was arrested Friday night at a home in Compton. Officials say air traffic controllers at Los Angeles International Airport reported that an airliner had been targeted by a laser. A sheriff’s helicopter was dispatched to the area and soon it was targeted as well. The helicopter’s pilot managed to direct patrol deputies to the origin of the laser beam and Rogers was arrested.
