DON'T LASE ME, BRO Getaway vehicle?
It's a rarefied news story that marries teens, lasers, and helicopters (was there no shark angle?), but the LA Times sniffs it out this morning. A jet pilot reported being "targeted" when flying over Newport Beach, California. Then, as the LAT reports without so much as a hint of sarcasm: "When an Orange County Sheriff's Department helicopter went to investigate, the crew was hit in the eyes with a laser beam while flying 700 feet overhead. 'They said they had headaches and blurry vision for a couple of hours,' said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. 'People need to be educated about the dangers of these lasers. They could cause a helicopter to crash. They could even take down a commercial airliner.'"
Also, Laser Tag is totally over.
