A Melbourne man who allegedly mistook a police helicopter for a UFO is now facing serious charges.
Police said the 42-year-old Brighton man shone a laser at a police helicopter about 1:30am.
He was arrested a short time later
He is expected to be charged on summons with conduct endangering persons and interference with crew or aircraft.
It is not the first time police have laid charges for lasers being pointed at their helicopters.
A Preston man was charged after a laser pointer was aimed at a police helicopter from a moving car in 2013, while a Cranbourne man was charged over a similar offence in 2011.
