The man said he had a gun.

At some point, the bus driver was able to pull over and let all the passengers off and then continued toward Portland.

Authorities arrested 31-year-old Anthony S. Lybeck when the bus was forced to stop in heavy traffic on Interstate 205.

Lybeck was booked on a kidnapping charge. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.
