Man Accused in Shooting of CMPD Officer Facing Federal Charges

From by Nate Stewart, January 10, 2014

A Kings Mountain man went before Judge David Cayer for a first appearance Friday.

While court only lasted a few minutes, the judge told James Lewis federal charges will be brought against him for his alleged involvement in the Dec. 12 robbery of a fast-food restaurant.

James Lewis, 31, was wearing an orange jumpsuit and pushed out of federal court in a wheelchair by U.S. marshals.

Prosecutors said Lewis walked into a Jack-in-the-Box on Pineville-Matthews Road, pointed a semiautomatic handgun at the manager and stole $450.

An affidavit filed in federal court by the Federal Bureau of Investigation said since payroll checks for employees are sent from San Diego to Charlotte, the robbery affected interstate commerce, bringing federal charges.

Lewis was later arrested at this house in Fort Mill, S.C.
