Shine a light

A TEENAGER has been arrested after allegedly shining a light at a police helicopter.

The 17-year-old, from Burnley, was arrested after the helicopter filmed him shining the light from a bedroom window at his home.

He will appear before Reedley Youth Court on January 24.

At first I thought this was a bit of an over reaction, until I discovered that the light in question was the red dot sight on a SAM7 missile launcher.
