GENEVA, Ga. (AP) -- The FBI says a man faces charges after authorities say he fired at a Georgia State Patrol helicopter in Talbot County.<br />
James Fryer was set to have an initial court appearance Thursday in Columbus. It wasn't immediately clear whether Fryer had a lawyer.<br />
The FBI says the helicopter was operating over a home in Geneva as part of the Governor's Marijuana Eradication Task Force when the crew heard gunshots and saw a man in what appeared to be a shooting stance. The crew took evasive action and contacted law enforcement on the ground.<br />
Once the helicopter landed, damage to its main rotor blades was discovered.<br />
Law enforcement agents went to the residence and found the 59-year-old Fryer outside the home and visibly upset. Fryer was charged with destruction of aircraft.
