Two men were arrested and face felony charges for allegedly shining a laser pointer at a CHP aircraft.
The aircraft was hit by a laser from suspects on the ground near Bradshaw and Old Placerville roads late on Feb. 28.
The pilot of the aircraft was able to lead Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies and Rancho Cordova police officers to the suspects.
Officers arrested Haik Kurdoglanyan, 25, and Artem Sargsyan, 34. A high-powered laser was found during the arrest. Each man faces a felony charge.
Both men have since bailed out of the Sacramento County Jail.
