A 19-year-old Longwood man was arrested Saturday night after deputies said he pointed a laser at a Seminole County Sheriff's helicopter as it flew near his house. Deputies arrested Trevor Ragno at his home. Deputies said the pilot of the helicopter reported that the crew was being struck repeatedly by a laser around 11:45 p.m. while they were on patrol. The helicopter crew was able to pinpoint the location of the laser to a home on Deerview Place. Through the helicopter's night-vision camera system they saw a man in swimming trunks and no shirt standing in the home's pool enclosure shining a laser at the helicopter, according to the arrest report.
