Arkansas School Bus Hijacked By Man With Knife
A man armed with a knife has forced his way onto a school bus as it picked up children in Arkansas before leading police on a chase.
Police said 11 children and the driver were aboard when Nicholas John Miller got onto the bus in Jacksonville, a suburb of Little Rock.
Jacksonville police spokeswoman April Kiser said the 22-year-old was armed with a knife and pulled over only after seeing police spike strips on the road.
Ms Kiser said no one was injured.
A witness to the chase captured video and posted a picture on Twitter. The photo posted by Kelsey Eggers shows the bus with several police cars in pursuit.
"I just witnessed this ... all of these police officers after this bus (like 60 more down the road!) he wouldn't stop!" she wrote.
She told Sky News in an email that it was "shocking" to witness.
"I never would have guessed that something like that would happen in Arkansas," she said.
Ms Kiser said it was unclear why Miller boarded the bus.
He was arrested on charges of vehicle piracy, kidnapping and aggravated assault.
