Kyle Man Sentenced for Assault on a Federal Officer

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Kyle, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault on a Federal Officer was sentenced by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Ramone McBride, age 20, was sentenced on October 3, 2018, to 18 months in federal prison, followed by 2 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

McBride was found guilty of the charge following a federal jury trial in Rapid City on June 26, 2018.  

On September 4, 2017, an Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety Officer responded to McBride’s address in order to remove him from the residence.  After being informed McBride was no longer at the residence, McBride jumped the officer from behind.  McBride put the officer in a chokehold and assaulted him in the face multiple times with a closed fist.  McBride then grabbed the officer’s taser and deployed two taser cartridges – striking the officer in the temple, ear, neck, and bicep area.

This case was investigated by the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Megan Poppen prosecuted the case.
