Reckless Endangerment Arrest, Town of Tyre

On April 3rd, 2024, at about 11:57AM, Deputies arrested Robert J Bush JR, aged 40, of Port Byron, for Reckless endangerment, Criminal Mischief and several NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law violations (Unsafe Backing, Unsafe Tire and leaving the scene of a property damage accident)

The arrest stems from a report that as a repo agent was attempting to repossess a vehicle being operated by Bush Jr, he nearly ran over one of the repo agents and then struck both repossession agent’s vehicles, causing damage. Bush JR then fled the scene of the accident, traveling from the Petro Truck stop located in Tyre NY, before coming to a stop at Circle K located at State Route 5 and Route 90 in Cayuga County.

Bush JR was taken into custody without issue and processed at the Seneca County Law Enforcement Center. He is to answer the above criminal charges and traffic citations in the Town of Tyre court at a later date.
