Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can..
Since you had nothing to do with this, then you can't be charged with anything. Further, unless he was shining the laser pointer at aircraft, there is not anything illegal about shining a laser pointer out a car window unless he was shining it in people's eyes.. TN has made it a crime to point one at law enforcement officers, but it doesn't sound like he did that based on your comments.
So I don't think you have anything to worry about here because you can't be held liable for friend's potentially illegal conduct.
