It was a bit of a scare, Thursday, for bus passengers on their way to Detroit. A Greyhound bus continued on its way northbound on I-75 after being checked for explosives in Campbell County, near the Kentucky state line.
Tennessee Department of Safety spokesman Mike Browning said state Trooper Mike Wilson stopped the bus after a passenger aboard it called 911. The caller said a fellow passenger had a suspicious package taped to his waist.
Browning said dogs trained to detect explosives and drugs were used to check the Greyhound bus and no explosives were found.
Browning said 32-year-old Milton Moore Dengler III of Jacksonville, Fla., was being charged with public intoxication and possession of prescription pills for resale.
The bus was northbound with stops in Kentucky, Ohio and eventually Detroit and was delayed for more than two hours because of the incident.
