NYC Man Among 2 Charged in Bus Bomb Scare: Cops

The Greyhound bus

Two passengers have been arrested in connection with a daylong bomb scare on a Greyhound bus in Portsmouth, N.H.

Police say John Smolens, of Lewiston, Maine, was charged with resisting arrest for his behavior after he got off the off the Maine-to-New York bus. Another passenger, Calvin Segar, of New York City, was charged with obstructing officers.

Both are to be arraigned in Portsmouth later Friday.

The bomb scare and standoff began Thursday morning when a passenger reported hearing another passenger say a bomb was on the bus and called 911, prompting police to surround the bus.

The overheard man was from Burundi and refused to get off the bus for many hours. He will not be charged.
