Both had a pair of outstanding warrants. The 18-year-old driver from Kalamazoo will also be charged with fleeing and eluding and driving on a suspended license.

The Passenger, a 21-year-old from Bangor is a parole absconder who will be charged with resisting and possession of Heroin.No one on the bus was injured.
