Lasers are shined at ship pi­lots in bay

The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER -

The Coast Guard says some­one is shin­ing lasers into the eyes of ship pi­lots on the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay.

The ser­vice re­ported seven night­time in­stances last week. The laser strikes are be­lieved to have orig­i­nated be­tween Drum Point and Cove Point.

Each lasted about 15 min­utes. Such strikes are a mis­de­meanor crime and carry a max­i­mum prison sen­tence of 10 years.
