Originally indicted by a federal grand jury for firing at an in-flight police helicopter, Michael P. McMichael, of Oklahoma City, was slapped with 46 months in prison for being a habitual methamphetamine user unlawfully in possession of a firearm, the FBI announced on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old shot at the police helicopter in Oklahoma City on June 25 or 26, says the FBI, damaging the aircraft. He was indicted for the incident on January 18, 2011 and pled guilty on April 11, 2011 to the charges he was sentenced for.

Prosecuted by Assistant US Attorney Randy Sengel, the case was the result of a cooperative investigation by the Oklahoma City police and the FBI.
