Deputies have released video in connection with the arrest of a man accused of pointing a laser at a sheriff's helicopter.
The incident happened Wednesday night. Two helicopter pilots spotted someone inside a car at the Lofts apartment complex on Rocky Circle in Tampa. They directed patrol units to the car.
