For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of California

OAKLAND – Antoyne Terrell Bullock appeared today in United States District Court to face a federal charge that he possessed ammunition during a road rage incident on Interstate 580, announced United States Attorney Ismail J. Ramsey and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) Special Agent in Charge Jennifer Cicolani. Bullock made his initial appearance today in United States District Court in Oakland before United States Chief Magistrate Judge Donna M. Ryu.

The charge was set out in a criminal complaint filed June 16, 2023, and unsealed in federal court today. The criminal complaint alleges the defendant, Bullock, 43, shot at a fellow motorist causing the motorist to lose control of their vehicle. Specifically, on May 25, 2023, the defendant, in his Ford SUV, sped up next to the driver of a Dodge truck, and while beside the Dodge, the defendant rolled down the rear back passenger window of his SUV and shot at the driver of the Dodge. The defendant struck the driver side window causing it to shatter.

The complaint further details, the driver of the Dodge ducked, while turning the steering wheel, causing his vehicle to collide with the defendant’s SUV. The SUV overturned, rolling over several times before coming to a stop on its roof. The defendant, and the female passenger, attempted to leave the scene of the accident when California Highway Patrol officers arrived. Upon canvasing the scene, officers recovered a P80 handgun and keys to the Ford SUV alongside the highway. When officers arrested the defendant, they recovered a loaded magazine in his pants pocket.

In sum, the complaint charges Bullock with being a felon in possession of ammunition, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1). The statutory maximum for the charge for the violation is 10 years’ imprisonment, a maximum fine of $250,000, a maximum of 3 years’ supervised release, and a $100 special assessment. However, any sentence following a conviction would be imposed by a court only after considerations of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statue governing the imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553.

The charges contained in the criminal complaint are only allegations. As in any criminal case, the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

Bullock is scheduled to make his next federal court appearance on July 18, 2023, for a preliminary hearing and arraignment.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth Chambers is prosecuting the case with the assistance of Jasmine Sanders. The prosecution is the result of an investigation by ATF, California Highway Patrol, the Oakland Police Department, and the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.
