"The suspect admitted he did it, turned over the laser to police, and he was charged," said Denise Alex-Bouzounis, a spokesperson for Columbus Police.

Denzel Christian, 20, of Grove City is charged with interfering with operation of aircraft with a laser. He was arrested at 2170 Homewood Ave around 10:30 p.m.

"You just shouldn't do that, especially an adult, someone who's 20 years old and old enough to understand right from wrong," Alex-Bouzounis said.

The helicopter crew wasn't injured and was able to direct police officers on the ground to the spot where the suspect was located.
