A man in his mid 20s who aimed a laser at a commercial airliner, then flashed a sheriff's helicopter crew that was dispatched to investigate was arrested in the Hollywood Hills area, police said Friday.

Officials from Bob Hope Airport in Burbank notified the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday that someone, possibly in the Universal CityWalk area, had flashed an airliner, said Officer R. Dominik of the Los Angeles Police Department's North Hollywood Station.

When the sheriff's helicopter arrived overhead, the suspect flashed the air unit, whose crew was able to pinpoint the man's location, enabling Los Angeles police officers to arrest him in the 2300 block of Bonnie Hill Drive, he said, adding he had the laser in his possession.

The man, who is 24 or 25, was booked on suspicion of shining a laser at an occupied aircraft in motion, he said. No one aboard the plane or helicopter was injured.
