A 57-year-old Sunset man is accused of threatening to shoot a school bus driver and his passengers after the bus drove slowly past his house, Utah police say.

Barry Gene Bambrough, 57, faces charges including terrorist threats, assault on a school employee, assault on a peace officer and disorderly conduct, KSTU reported.

A bus driver reported that he heard someone shouting at him as he drove through a neighborhood looking for an address Friday, Sept. 16, KSL reported.

Then Bambrough grabbed his arm through the side window, trying to yank him from the bus, police told KTVX. Bambrough told the driver to get out “so he can kill him.”

He also said he was “going to go get a gun to kill him and whoever was on the bus,” the Standard-Examiner reported. Three disabled children and an aide were aboard.

The man then returned to his home, according to the publication.

When police arrived, they found the driver “shaking and in tears,” KTVX reported.

An officer went to Bambrough’s home, where he also threatened to kill her, and arrested him, KSTU reported.

Sunset is a city of 5,000 people about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City.
