A man accused of shooting a Jacksonville SWAT officer during a drug raid at his home outside Cabot has been indicted on methamphetamine and weapons charges.

He was indicted Tuesday with one count of conspiring to distribute five grams or more of methamphetamine; three counts of assault with a deadly weapon; and three counts of possession of a firearm in relation to a crime of violence, U.S. Attorney Chris Thyer said in a statement.
