TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A Tacoma man accused of shining a laser into the cockpit of a Washington State Patrol plane has been re-arrested after prosecutors said he missed a court hearing.

Pierce County prosecutors issued a warrant in December for 27-year-old Aaron Huffman after he missed a court date in the case.

The News Tribune reports (https://is.gd/y214cV) Huffman has already pleaded not guilty to unlawful discharge of a laser.

Huffman was booked into jail Monday. At a Tuesday hearing, a judge set bail at $10,000.

The plane was patrolling for drunken drivers in August when two troopers noticed the laser flashing across the cockpit.

They directed troopers on the ground to Huffman’s home.
