Dover, DE- A New Jersey woman was arrested last evening after threatening a commercial bus driver with a knife.
The incident occurred at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening when a commercial bus carrying passengers from New York City to Norfolk, VA had just departed the Rodney Village Shopping Center after having a meal at a restaurant. Once the bus was southbound on US 13, Jennifer Quick, 26, began hollering and screaming for the bus to stop which upset other passengers on the bus. Quick then approached the 53 year old 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 from Hampton Roads Regional Police Center, intervened and was able to safely disarm Quick, while the bus driver was able to bring the bus to a stop near Johnny Janosik.
Quick continued her disorderly behavior even after the responding Troopers and officers from Camden PD arrived on scene. She actively resisted the commands of the officers until they could place her into custody without further incident.
There were no injuries to anyone involved. The knife used in this incident was a three and three quarter inch folding knife which was secured by State Troopers.
Quick was arraigned at JP2 on the above listed charges and committed to Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on $6,250.00 secured bail.
