WASHINGTON, DC. - An American University student appeared in court Monday on a federal felony charge of aiming a laser pointer at a U.S. Park Police helicopter on Inauguration Day on Friday.

The student, George Herdeg, 21, from San Antonio, is an international-studies major in his senior year, the university confirmed.

Prosecutors disclosed Herdeg’s arrest Saturday at the same time they announced charging 230 demonstrators with felony rioting after damage was done to storefronts and a limousine was set on fire in a four-block area near 13th and K streets NW.
