A 21-year-old Newton resident is facing charges that he pointed a laser at the windows of several moving cars near Newton Centre, police said. The man, who was charged by Newton police with disorderly conduct and assault and battery, is scheduled for a probable cause hearing at Newton District Court on March 25. His name will not be released prior to the hearing, said Lieutenant Bruce Apotheker, a Newton police spokesman. Police received reports of a laser being pointed into cars shortly after 6 p.m. on Feb. 25. The man has not been charged with shining the laser pen at two airplanes the same night.
