    This man and woman, both in their early 20's have nothing better to do than point lasers at incoming aircraft in the early evening in Chicago?

    After the incident was reported by the pilot, a police chopper was dispatched to investigate and the couple aimed the laser at the police chopper too.

    They are in custody - uncertain if charges will be laid.

    Given the element of potential disaster, I have not been able to wrap my mind around this at all.

    Charges better be laid! Can't believe the [unusual people]!

    ETA: that article linked in the OP says charges have been laid; just doesn't specify what charges
