Documents said prior to the execution of the warrant, Trammell and a 16-year-old crashed their vehicle into an FBI agent, injuring and pinning the agent between two vehicles.

Trammell is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 17, 2023. He remains in federal custody pending sentencing. Trammell faces a minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum sentence of life in prison.
