Officials hope a new federal law will prompt people to think twice before pointing a laser at an airplane. The law also criminalizes pointing a laser at a helicopter and carries a penalty of up to $250,000 and five years in prison. "Safeguarding the skies from laser attacks on aircraft is vitally important, and I promise the full force of the U.S. attorney's office to address this increasing problem," said U.S. Attorney David J. Hickton.
