ARASOTA, Fla. — A pilot was temporarily blinded while trying to land at a Florida airport after a man pointed a laser directly in his eyes, local police said.
Manatee County Sheriff’s deputies responded just after 7:40 p.m. Wednesday to the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport for a report of a laser being pointed at planes making their approach to land.
While police were trying to locate the suspect, he also used the laser on them, officials said. The suspect was located on a forklift just east of the airport.
Police surrounded the individual, later identified as Charlie James Chapman Jr., 41, and he grabbed a hammer and made striking motions toward deputies. A taser was deployed, and police found a laser pointer in Chapman’s pocket.

Unmissable big city bustle in one of the world’s greatest urban landscapes
American author E.B. White once quipped about this city of eight million inhabitants: “New York provides not only a continuing excitation but also a spectacle that is continuing.” And while he may have said this nearly a century ago, his words still ring true to this day. The City that Never Sleeps is in constant motion – yes, even at 3am – and while the surface may be always transforming, its heart never really changes. Spend a day seeing the sites in Manhattan and another day wandering the heart of global hipsterism in Brooklyn. There’s no better time to take a bite out of this pulsating metropolis.

No words can explain what I just went through the past 5 days. I was locked up in Egypt because I climbed the Pyramids Of Giza. I’ve been in Jail many times but this one was by far the very worst. I saw horrible things and I don’t wish this upon anybody. Was it worth it? FUCK YEAH! I did it for a good cause and soon I’m going to share the whole video so the whole world can see 🔥
Is a great Instagram post worth going to jail over?
An American-Russian influencer recently revealed to his followers that he’d spent several days in an Egyptian jail after being arrested for climbing one of the pyramids of Giza.
Ironically, Vitaly Zdorovetskiy uploaded a picture about a week ago where he bragged that he was going to take over Egypt. Several days later, he revealed that he had been arrested.
“I was locked up in Egypt because I climbed the Pyramids of Giza,” he continued. “I’ve been in Jail many times but this one was by far the very worst. I saw horrible things and I don’t wish this upon anybody.”

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A woman walking through the baggage claim area of Miami International Airport while casually removing all of her clothes is now in custody for a mental evaluation.
It was just before midnight when stunned passengers spotted the woman walking by in her dark blue underwear.
Cellphone video shows the woman appears to be singing as she calmly takes off her clothes while walking through the area.
Eventually, she is nude in the middle of the airport.
Moments later, video shows her on top of a police car near the airport exit. She jumps off in traffic and runs over to a waiting police officer who takes her into custody.
