York man charged with two felonies after allegedly threatening to kill county jail staff

YORK – A case involving felony terroristic threats has been bound over to District Court, as Tristan Busler, 22, of York, is charged with allegedly threatening to kill York County Jail staff and their families.

His arraignment was scheduled for this week, but was continued into October.

According to court documents, he was arrested for DUI-drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and carrying a concealed weapon. He was transported to the York County Jail, where he allegedly “became agitated and confrontational with the corrections staff. In two separate incidents, he became verbally threatening and made deliberate and specific threats.”

The affidavit filed with the court says “the first verbal threat was directed at (a specific correctional officer). He said he was going to kill all the cops and then he was going to sit back and watch to see where (the officer) drops off his kid at school so he would be able to kill him.”

The affidavit says the second incident involved him “lashing out at (another corrections officer), telling her he was going to place fentanyl on her vehicle’s door handles so he could harm her. He also threatened to go to her home and kill her children. He continued to make verbal threats directed toward the corrections staff throughout the evening and morning hours.”

Each charge is a Class 3A felony which carries a possible maximum sentence of three years in prison with 18 months of post-release supervision, upon conviction.
