Weather: Clear. Not a factor

	En route back to base in western Wisconsin after completing a patient
	transport, the aircraft and crew were shined by a green laser from the
	ground.  The pilot reported the location to the Comm Center and law
	enforcement was contacted.  County Sheriff's Deputies observed the
	area (campground/park) for a short time and observed a person shining
	other aircraft.  The offender was promptly arrested, jailed and held
	until transferred to federal authorities.
