BATON ROUGE- A 27-year-old man who repeatedly pointed a green laser at a police helicopter as it patrolled the city last year has been fined, put on probation and ordered to pay restitution to the Baton Rouge Police Department.
    
Federal prosecutors in March charged Robert C. Adamek, of Baton Rouge, with forcibly impeding and interfering with an officer. He later pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor.
    
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge James Brady placed Adamek on probation for one year, fined him $2,000 and ordered him to pay $500 to the BRPD Aviation Unit.
    
The incident took place about 3 a.m. Feb. 16, 2014, while a police chopper was flying over and around residential neighborhoods in the city.
