BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol has many responsibilities. One of those is to help the FAA crackdown on the use of lasers being pointed at an aircraft.

Last year, 162 pilots reported someone shining a laser at their plane in Ohio.

It might not sound like a scary number, but if you were a passenger on one of those planes, there would certainly be cause for concern.
