  • Threatening a Kansas Highway Patrolman: Not the best idea.

Making threats to a Kansas Highway Patrolman is a really bad idea.

Timothy L. Wyrick found out after leaving messages like this one for a trooper last year.

"You got to leave too early from your traffic stop! Had you in my

scope! Well, gonna be some good things happen tonight. Oh, I got your

burial site all done, ready for you. Bye, bye."

Wyrick, a 33-year-old Bonner Springs man who worked for the highway patrol as a motorist assist technician, made several calls between March and mid-September 2009. Wyrick proved he could be extra creepy and stalker-y when making threats. Wyrick would call the trooper's home and cell phones and describe what the trooper looked like and where the trooper was on duty and what the trooper was doing. He even claimed he knew where the trooper lived as well as where the trooper's mother lived.

Some of the calls were made from a payphone at a Wal-Mart in Paola,

Kansas. Others were made from an untraceable Tracfone.

Wyrick was busted on September 15, 2009, when investigators witnessed

him making a call from a cell phone while sitting in a Kansas Highway

Patrol work truck parked on the side of 69 Highway in Overland Park. He

was arrested and his cell phone was confiscated from his boot.

On

Tuesday, Wyrick pleaded guilty to five counts of communicating a threat

by interstate commerce. He was sentenced to 37 months in federal

prison.
