Man to be charged for lasering news helicopter in Hubbard

HUBBARD

Charges are pending against a man who shined a laser on a news helicopter that was over the football stadium Friday.

Hubbard Police Chief Jim Taafe said the man used the laser from his house in the Meadowlands development south of the stadium. The helicopter was videotaping Hubbard’s game with Niles for a Cleveland TV station.

A police report says the cameraman in the helicopter complained the laser light got in his eyes. He was able to tell police where the light came from.

Taafe said the police notified the FBI, which did not indicate whether agents would get involved. The man would be charged with interfering with a flight crew, a second-degree felony, Taafe said.
