KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Kansas City, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for aiming his laser pointer at a Kansas City, Mo, Police Department helicopter.

Jordon Clarence Rogers, 24, of Kansas City, was charged in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Mo.
