UPDATE: Laser Suspect Was “Playing Around” At Party
According to The Seattle Times, Burien resident Christopher C. Saunders, 24, who was arrested last Friday by Port of Seattle Police for lasering approaching airplanes near Sea-Tac Airport (a felony), was apparently “playing around” with a green laser light at a party in the 2200 block of South 136th Street on Feb. 22nd.
The Times says that the renter of the house said Saunders first pointed the laser at their horses until he was asked to stop. At least 12 airplanes reported being “lasered” that night, and numerous incidents happened over the following 2-3 weeks.
As the police interviewed the renter, Saunders arrived at the residence and confessed to pointing the beam in multiple directions on the day of the party and that he might have “lasered” a plane.
