Man indicted for pointing pellet gun

A Locust Grove man was indicted last week for pointing an air pellet gun at four people during a May altercation at the Taco Bell in Peachtree City.

Jermal Thomas, 17, of Kings Cove, Locust Grove, is charged with four felony counts of aggravated assualt in connection with the incident.

The incident occurred May 8 and Thomas was on a golf cart at the time, police said. The dispute involved people who had congregated on the outdoor patio area of the restaurant, police said.

The charges were filed in part because Thomas portrayed the air pellet gun to be a real handgun, police said.

You mean it took from May til now to file charges? And why four felony charges? You only give us half of the story-not too helpful.

It was probably from pointing it at 4 different people. The law over charges with the hopes of getting the defendant to cut a plea to fewer and/or less harsh charges. It is a BS practice used to push plea bargains.

...if the little moron actually shot those 4 people, that should be just one charge, too? Maybe the bs justice system wants him to understand he threatened 4 humans, not just 1. Yeah, just the Man keeping him down...

I'm betting that a good Defense Lawyer will get it reduced to "Reckless Conduct."
