WADSWORTH, Illinois -- A person is in custody after the police pursuit of a Greyhound bus that ended near the Wisconsin-Illinois border late Friday, January 12th. Illinois State Police (ISP) say a disorderly and possibly armed subject was reported on the bus.

“You see it, and I almost got chills because it automatically looked like there was a fatality, like a car accident. Chilling, it was chilling to see," Jennifer Feddern who lives nearby said.

Officials say this incident began around 10:00 p.m. Friday when the pursuit involving the bus was initiated in southeast Wisconsin. The pursuit crossed into Illinois and ended at the I-94 eastbound exit ramp to Illinois Route 173.

“When we first got here it was pretty crazy, lots of cop cars, lots of traffic backed up. It has settled down quite a bit and it seems to be resolving which is great," Ashley Goodes who lives nearby said.

Authorities say the subject was taken into custody around 12:30 a.m.

Approximately 37 passengers aboard the bus were safely removed -- and there are no injuries reported.

“I'm glad to hear it was resolved and everyone’s okay," Goodes said.

Greyhound officials brought a relief bus to the scene to pick up passengers and take them to Chicago.

Because of this incident, all lanes of southbound I-94 near Wisconsin 50 in Kenosha County were shut down for a time.
