Authorities have arrested a man who they said held 50 people hostage aboard a Greyhound bus late Friday night.

The incident began shortly before 10 p.m. Central time when the bus was heading from Milwaukee to Chicago. One of the passengers called 911 and said a man armed with a gun, threatened to kill people on the bus, said the County Sheriff’s office Racine, Wisconsin.
Authorities tracked down the bus on the South-Eastern direction of the route 94 and tried to stop him, but the bus had to cross state lines and ended up in Illinois. Then the bus stopped in Wadsworth.
