The Muskegon Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1OrVTYM ) the pilot said the green laser beam came into the cockpit Wednesday evening on his approach to the Mason County Airport in Pere Marquette Township near Ludington.

Sheriff Kim Cole says a search found nothing but the Federal Aviation Administration is expected to investigate. It’s a federal crime to point lasers at planes.
