May 20, 2009
CALIFORNIA, PA — A California Area High School janitor was suspended and is facing criminal charges after allegedly threatening to physically harm teachers, students and administrators, according to the Herald-Standard.
Michael Tiernan, a janitor at the high school for over a decade with no prior criminal record, was charged with terroristic threats and harassment after he began heckling fellow employees in February, the story stated.
The harassment allegedly continued until Tiernan was suspended by the California Area School District in April, the story noted.
According to the story, Tiernan allegedly told coworkers that if he loses his job, "nobody is coming out of this building alive."
Tiernan was released on $2,500 unsecured bond following his arraignment and is to have no contact with school employees and no access to the high school for the time being, the story added.
