Andrew explained that the Swiss authorities informed him that the laser pointer was prohibited in the country.

Consequently, he was detained and placed in a cell for two hours. During this time, he was told that he could not be released until a Swiss resident with a verifiable address came forward to vouch for him. After securing such a guarantor, he was eventually released.
