Greyhound passenger from Quartzsite arrested!
Last night a Greyhound bus en route to Phoenix from Los Angeles made a scheduled stop in Quartzsite. Shortly thereafter witnesses claim that 47 year old Aaron L'Hoir became combative, accused other passengers of having weapons, and threatened to blow up the bus. Passengers were able to restrain the suspect while the driver called for assistance. The incident shut down Interstate 10 in both directions for about two hours while an explosives team searched the bus. According to DPS Dispatch Officer Christian Snyder there were no injuries and no weapons or explosives were found.
L'Hoir was arrested and taken to the La Paz County jail for assault and disorderly conduct. Sgt. Keven Wood, an investigator with the major crimes division of DPS stated that although L'Hoir boarded the bus in Quartzsite, his home of origin was unknown. I think it's safe to say that this is one "winter visitor" that may not be returning next fall.
