A 40-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly spotlighted a CHP airplane. Last Wednesday evening, the CHP airplane was assisting an allied agency in the area of Hartnell Avenue and Churn Creek Road in Redding. The CHP pilots say that while orbiting the area, a powerful spotlight illuminated the cockpit temporarily affecting the pilots vision. A patrol officer on the ground was called to locate where the light originated. Officers found a pickup truck with Travis Sweig inside. The CHP says that Sweig had the engine running and the spotlight was plugged into a cigarette lighter to get maximum power out of the light. The CHP says that during a search of the vehicle, officers found two loaded firearms and drug paraphernalia. Sweig was taken into custody on multiple charges.
