Laser Threat Awareness

Mollie Halpern: Here’s a pointer. You can use a laser to make your cat chase its tail, but aim it at an aircraft and you could be needing bail.

Don’t let a prank lead to prison. Aiming a laser at an aircraft is a federal crime.

It could land you five years behind bars and/or up to a $250,000 fine.

Report illegal laser use to the FBI and you may be eligible for an up to $10,000 reward.
