Middlesex County prosecutors have charged the 22-year-old Piscataway man with attempted murder, conspiracy, and cyber harassment.

Authorities say Bullock had been plotting to murder the family members of an acquaintance.

Rutgers University kicked the junior linebacker off the team following his arrest. The school added that it was also starting its own disciplinary investigation into the charges against the former student-athlete.
