McNeil is a documented member of the Bloods, a gang responsible for heinous crimes across the country.
He’s a known gang member, affiliated with the Blood gang," US DFAT Supervisor Deputy Aaron Garcia said. "A notorious violent gang that started in prison and he has several arrests for guns, drugs, weapons, you name it, he’s been arrested for it."
McNeil was scheduled for a jury trial last month on guns and weapons charges. That's when he viciously attacked his girlfriend.
"He was fighting with her, he choked her and he’s also charged with felonious assault – for choking his pregnant girlfriend," Garcia said.
He was wanted on probation violations just released from prison, coming off a sentence of 10 to 19 years for weapons and theft.
