Police arrested a man on a Greyhound bus stopped on a Chicago expressway after he threatened to blow up the vehicle, authorities said.

Illinois State Police said they received a call that a man was threatening to blow up the bus on the Kennedy Expressway near Keeler Avenue about 4:23 p.m. The bus was headed to Chicago from Milwaukee. A bomb dog searched the bus after the suspect was removed along with all passengers, state police said. The dog didn’t find any explosives.

Video footage shot from a news helicopter showed state and Chicago police surrounding the bus and a state trooper boarding the bus and bringing a man off. Several officers then wrestle the man to the ground.

The man’s name and the charges he might face were not immediately released.
