Woman Charged After Trying To Grab Bus Driver

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A Florida woman has been charged with inducing panic after she allegedly tried to grab a Greyhound bus driver as they were traveling on Interstate 77 in Summit County.

Sheriff's officials say that the driver blew his horn at a deputy who was running radar on the freeway and pulled the bus over. The woman then jumped in the driver's seat and tried to drive off in the bus, but the driver had disabled it so that it couldn't be driven.

Tonya Colvett, 33, of Naples, was arraigned Tuesday in Barberton Municipal Court and is being held in the Summit County Jail.

The bus driver says that Colvett repeatedly tried to grab his arms while he was driving, and then she tried to grab a baby from the woman sitting behind the driver.

No one was injured.
