Man accused of pointing laser at police helicopter landing at Bob Hope Airport
A 30-year-old Burbank man was arrested Sunday night after he allegedly pointed a laser at a Glendale police helicopter crew as they were preparing to land at Bob Hope Airport.
Rafael Torosyan allegedly flashed the laser at the Glendale air crew four times before he was followed and eventually arrested, police said.
The air crew had just completed a patrol of the skies and was returning to the airport at about 10 p.m. when a green light suddenly lighted up the helicopter’s cockpit, police said.
