Federal officials are investigating after a public official in Georgia allegedly threatened a pilot for flying too low, disturbing a pizza party at his mother's house. Paul McCorkle, an elected commissioner in McDuffie County, and his brother Sammy reportedly drove to the Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport to find the pilot, threatening to shoot down his plane if he flew too low again. Local officials investigated on Wednesday and Thursday before turning the case over to the FAA. "We've done as much as we can with the case and now we've put it in the hands of federal authorities," said Sheriff Logan Marshall.
