Laser Pointer Leads to Prison

Laser Pointer Leads to Prison

A man who pointed a laser pointer at planes in western Wisconsin is heading to prison.

A federal judge in Minneapolis yesterday sentenced Nicholas Link, who lives in Rochester, Minnesota, to two years behind bars. Police tracked him to River Falls, Wisconsin after pilots on a Delta flight into Minneapolis complained of being blinded by a blue laser. The pilot says any minor mistake during their descent could have had ‘catastrophic results.’
