By dpa news     Oct 1, 2007 in Crime
A young man has been arrested in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for irritating a helicopter pilot with a laser pen, the Al-Khaleej daily reported on Monday.
According to the report, the 21-year old had pointed the laser from his family's home at the helicopter, which was flying over a residential area in Abu Dhabi.
He had only wanted to try out the gadget, which he bought from an Asian street trader earlier, with his brothers and sisters, he said.
Police reacted immediately when the pilot reported a light, which irritated him while flying.
When police found the laser, they arrested the man who is now facing a fine. dpa abc fk gma
