Suspect in custody after police chase Greyhound bus

Update: Suspect in custody after possible hostage situation on Greyhound bus

"This really could have gone in a different direction". "OK, if you got the person you're looking for and everything's done, why are you detaining us? I'm proud of that".

He said the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department, Wisconsin State Patrol, and Illinois State Police all assisted in chasing the bus across the state line. According to a passenger who called the police, the suspect was threatening to kill people.

"He was in and out of the washroom". Schmaling said the driver didn't know there was any potential danger. He reportedly made threats, referred to having a gun and acted as though he was going to pull one out of his waistband.

One passenger, Patrick Dodd, told the Chicago Tribune that the man pulled something out of his trousers that Dodd believed may have been a weapon.

Approximately 40 passengers aboard the bus were safely removed and no injuries were reported, police said.

That's when Racine County deputies took over, pursuing the bus with lights and sirens activated.

"The bus driver had no idea what was aeppening".

Sheriff Schmaling said the bus driver told authorities that he didn't stop the bus because he thought the squad cars were following another vehicle. "He thought it was a training exercise; he thought we were trying to stop someone else".

Covelli said Vargas-Rosas is being held pending extradition to Racine County, Wis.

Word most used to describe Trump's first year? Disaster
Even worse, an awesome 57 percent of respondents said Trump is "not fit for office" and 69 percent said he isn't "level-headed". Among those who voted for Trump in November 2016, 85 percent said they approve of his first year in office.

No weapons were found on him when he was booked in the Lake County, IL jail, and officers are continuing to search the bus for any weapons.

The bus eventually stopped just after the IL border after hitting spike strips put out by authorities in Kane County.

The Sheriff alleged Vargas-Rosas threatened investigators after he was arrested.

The suspect was ordered at gunpoint out of the bus and taken into custody without incident.

All the passengers have been interviewed, and it appears Vargas-Rosas had an altercation with at least two other passengers, Schmaling said.

Schmaling said the Racine County District Attorney will work through the process of having Vargas-Rosas extradited back to Wisconsin.

Police chased the bus overnight after passengers called 911.

The Illinois State Police said they are investigating whether the man was carrying a gun.

"There's a lot of areas you could hide a weapon on that bus, as you could imagine", he said.
