Life Imitates 'CSI: Miami'

CSI:Miami episode 317 - Money Plane:

Someone uses a laser light to blind a pilot and bring down a jet, which carries $1.2 billion in checks to be delivered to banks on the eastern seaboard. The crime scene evidence reveals a victim, a young fundraising socialite, who was inside the plane

(via Drudge) A New Jersey man faces trial for allegedly blinding an airline pilot:

NEWARK, N.J. - A man accused of pointing a green laser beam at a small passenger jet, temporarily blinding the pilot and co-pilot, was indicted Wednesday under the federal anti-terror Patriot Act.

David W. Banach, who claimed he was looking at stars with his daughter, also was accused of lying to the FBI about the Dec. 29 incident in which the jet's windshield and cabin were hit three times with a beam as the plane approached Teterboro Airport. [emphasis added]
You know what they say - once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is enemy action.

There was no word as to whether David Caruso was seen standing in the back of the courtroom with his hands on his hips.
