GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Dennis Lamar Thomas was arraigned Friday before U.S. Magistrate Susan S. Cole in Gainesville.
He was held without bond. The 49-year-old Thomas, who was fired in 2007, faces similar state charges.
Authorities say he violated a protective order Oct. 7 by going to his estranged wife's home and demanding that he be allowed to enter. Officers were called and allegedly found Thomas in possession of a Smith & Wesson handgun, as well as a crack pipe with cocaine residue.
Officers said they found a hand grenade inside a City of Jefferson police bag in his personal vehicle.
