Snipes Plans Guard-Training Camp

Updated:
EATONTON, Ga. (AP) — Wesley Snipes, who has played a federal marshal, a police officer and an FBI agent in his movies, wants to bring some real-life action to rural Georgia.

Snipes is negotiating to buy 300 acres about 35 miles northeast of Macon to create a camp to train security agents for celebrity protection, said Victor McGauley, vice president of Snipes' Los Angeles-based production company, Amen Ra Films.

``Wesley is a high-profile person, and he saw that specific security needs were not being met,'' McGauley said.

Putnam County chief building inspector J.D. Adams said a security school is not permitted on the property, which is zoned agricultural. He said the law has no provision for weapons storage as indicated in Snipes' proposal.

Attorneys appealing the ruling say a firing range is a permissible use of agricultural land.
