Two men from Stoke-on-Trent have been charged after a laser was shone at a police helicopter.
Ronnie Frost, 19, of High Street, Halmer End, and Joe Cordon, 21, of Eastbourne Road, Northwood, were arrested on Sunday night.
They were charged with directing or shining a light at aircraft in flight so as to dazzle or distract the pilot.
The men are due to appear at North Staffordshire Justice Centre on 17 November.
The helicopter was over the Northwood area searching for a missing person at the time.
