OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- A naked woman who left her vehicle and fired shots on Interstate 80 near the Bay Bridge Toll Plaza last week has been charged, according to San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins.
Sequoia Dunkinsell, 32, from Sacramento, is charged in connection to the shooting that happened on July 25 during the busy afternoon commute.
Dunkinsell was arraigned Tuesday and pled not guilty to the charges and allegations, DA Jenkins said.
She is charged with the following:
- Shooting at an occupied vehicle
- Making criminal threats
- Three counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm
- One count of negligent discharge of a firearm
- Four counts of brandishing a firearm
- One count of possession of a loaded firearm
- One count of reckless driving
"I am grateful that there was no loss of life in connection to this incident and to the California Highway Patrol for successfully de-escalating, disarming and apprehending Ms. Dunkinsell," said District Attorney Brooke Jenkins in a press release.
"The incident on the freeway was terrifying and endangered the lives of countless commuters. We will do everything in our power to ensure that there is appropriate accountability."
The shooting incident briefly shut down all eastbound lanes of I-80 near the toll plaza.
Dunkinsell is accused of shooting into the air and at commuters, snarling traffic for drivers.
She was arrested by the California Highway Patrol about an hour-and-a-half after the shooting began.
No injuries were reported.
Dunkinsell remains in custody with no bail, and is due back in court on August 11.
If convicted on all charges, she faces more than 22 years in state prison.
