Police say they received a 911 call about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday from a passenger on the bus, which was traveling on Interstate 95 from Richmond to New York.

Police say Servais was threatening other passengers and at one point barricaded himself in the bathroom at the back of the bus.

The bus was evacuated, and all 38 passengers got out safely.

Servais eventually was arrested without incident, but police were forced to close the HOV lanes on I-95 for about three hours.
