San Bernardino, California: Man arrested after pointing laser at Sheriff's helicopter

On Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 1:10 a.m. a Sheriff's helicopter was on patrol over the City of San Bernardino. While on patrol, the crew (a pilot and flight officer) was struck multiple times by a purple laser. Using the FLIR camera, the crew was able to locate the subject in a backyard of a residence and directed officers to that location.

San Bernardino Police Department responded to the residence and contacted a male and a female who were the only two subjects at the residence. The crew was able to rule out the female subject as a suspect. After an investigation, the male who was later identified as Christopher Flora, 37, was arrested for a violation of Penal Code Section PC248, a felony.

Flora was transported and booked at the West Valley Detention Center. He is being held on $25,000 bail.
