Illegal immigrant allegedly threatened to kill Greyhound passengers, police chase bus down highway

In what’s becoming an all-too-familiar story, an illegal alien who had been deported five times allegedly terrorized passengers on a Greyhound bus, resulting in law enforcement chasing the vehicle on the highway.

Margarito Vargas-Rosas, 33, threatened to shoot and kill everyone aboard the bus on Friday, according to one of the passengers, Patrick Dodd, who called 911.

In all, there were 35 passengers on the bus, according to Fox6, plus the bus driver and suspect.

Vargas-Rosas was reportedly pacing back and forth between aisles in the back of the bus and was reaching toward his waistband, like he had a gun.

“He was just acting crazy,” Dodd said. “It almost felt like a terrorist situation. You’re on a bus with a guy who said he had a gun.”

Police chased the bus from Wisconsin to Illinois, before they used spike strips to flatten the vehicle’s tires and force it to stop. For some strange reason, the bus driver was hesitant to pull over.

In fact, it was necessary to employ a second spike strip.

Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling said the driver didn’t stop because he “thought it was a training exercise by law enforcement.”

Vargas-Rosas was arrested and charged with felony terroristic threats and disorderly conduct, Fox6 reported. No weapon was found on the suspect but officials were conducting a thorough search, according to Fox News.

Sheriff Schmaling said the illegal immigrant threatened law enforcement as he was being transported to jail.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesperson told Fox News Vargas-Rosas, who was living in Chicago and working at a Milwaukee restaurant, had been deported five times. He also had a previous DUI arrest to his name.
