Suspect in custody after Greyhound bus pursuit across state lines, police say

Hostage situation involving coach bus

Police chased the bus overnight and put out spike strips after its driver failed to stop.

Another passenger called 911 from the bus to report a male claiming to have a gun and making threats to kill people Friday night as the bus headed to Chicago from Milwaukee, the Racine County, Wisconsin, Sheriff's Office said.

One person is facing charges after a police chase involving a Greyhound bus Friday. "He thought it was a training exercise; he thought we were trying to stop someone else".

Several witnesses told police they had heard an argument between the suspect and another passenger and the suspect made threats to kill "everyone on the bus" and reportedly made a motion to his waistband that he was removing a gun, police say.

The person arrested was being held in IL as of Saturday morning; he will be extradited and prosecuted in Racine County, said a Sheriff's Office official.

The bus finally came to a halt in Lake County, Illinois, after its tires deflated.

Vargas-Rosas was ordered off the bus at gunpoint, according to Fox 6, and was taken into custody without incident.

The suspect was taken into custody on I-94 in Wadsworth, Ill.

The interstate remains closed while police investigate. Schmaling said the driver didn't know there was any potential danger.

Terrance Williams of New Jersey was in the middle of the bus and initially thought police were escorting the bus, not realizing what was happening in the back.

They were eventually removed from the bus safely.

"The law is you see emergency lights you pull over", Williams said.
