NEW CANAAN - A New Canaan woman and a helicopter pilot are facing charges after a chopper landed last weekend.

Police say they responded to a call about a potential helicopter crash on Beacon Hill Road Saturday morning.

They say they questioned Janie Konidaris who originally said she didn't know anything about a helicopter. However, Konidaris later told police a helicopter had landed to pick up her husband.

She's been charged with lying to police while the pilot was served with a summons for operating the helicopter in a restricted area.
