Bizarre Behavior In Court Gets Him Mental Evaluation;
Other Charges Alleged
13WHAM reports: As 23 year old Timothy McKiver showed up to Greece Town Court for his arraignment Wednesday night, he appeared combative.
In the courtroom, McKiver refused to answer the judge's questions. McKiver pleaded the 5th when asked his name and birthdate and at one point even claimed to the judge to be god.
It’s because of those actions; McKiver was remanded to the Monroe County Jail without bail.
But it's how police found McKiver that has him facing more charges.
According to court paperwork, McKiver was at his girlfriend's home Wednesday when she got a call from McKiver’ s mom stating she saw her son on the news, wanted in connection with the Greece school bus incident.
Infrared cameras caught Timothy McKiver, 23, of Greece, getting onto the bus Tuesday morning at Bonesteel Street and Joanne Drive. While on the bus, McKiver sat alone and never talked with other students.
Court documents say when McKiver saw himself on the news he started to laugh and said "I look good on TV" and snatched his girlfriend's phone and called 911 to turn himself in.
Court documents also allege that McKiver punched, pinched and whipped his girlfriend’s two year old son for no reason.
McKiver now faces additional charges for allegedly taking his girlfriend’s cell phone and child endangerment charges.
McKiver is scheduled for a mental exam and arraignment Thursday.
SCATS ~~ So the school district's robo-call to parents was inaccurate! This man is/was clearly a threat & should never have been able to board that bus!
