ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A 13-year-old boy faces charges after Orange County authorities say he pointed a laser at a sheriff's office helicopter.

A sheriff's office statement says the helicopter was struck twice with the laser Friday evening in the Orlando area. The pilot was able to see where the laser was coming from and deputies later found the boy with his parents.

Authorities say charges are being filed against the boy, who was not arrested. His parents were cooperative with deputies.
