DOVER, Del. (CBS) – A New Jersey woman was arrested after threatening a commercial bus driver with a knife in Delaware Tuesday evening, police said.
Jennifer Quick, 26, is facing several charges in connection with the incident that occurred at about 6:30 p.m. on a bus in Dover, Delaware.
Authorities say the bus, which was carrying passengers from New York City to Virginia, had just left the Rodney Village Shopping Center.
Once the bus was southbound on US 13, authorities say Quick for some reason began hollering and screaming for the bus to stop. Authorities say Quick then approached the bus driver and produced a knife threatening to kill him if he didn’t stop the bus and let her off.
A passenger on the bus, who happened to be an off-duty correctional officer, intervened and was able to safely disarm Quick, while the bus driver was able to bring the bus to a stop.
Investigators say Quick continued her disorderly behavior even after troopers and officers arrived on scene. She actively resisted the commands of the officers until they could place her into custody without further incident.
Officers recovered the knife that was used in the incident. There were no reports of any injuries.
Quick, of Jersey City, New Jersey, has been charged with Aggravated Menacing, Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony, Terroristic Threatening, Resisting Arrest and Disorderly Conduct.
Quick was arraigned and is being held at the Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on $6,250 secured bail.
