GROVE CITY, Pa. - A charter bus driver who allegedly stopped a Chicago-to-New York trip and demanded money from each of his passengers to continue it was charged with disorderly conduct and related offenses, police said.

Kai Chen, 44, of Brooklyn, N.Y., was driving 25 people, including several small children, for a company called New Oriental Tours Inc., also out of Brooklyn, police said.

He pulled into a Venango County rest stop along Interstate 80 late Sunday night, cursed at the passengers and demanded money from them to continue the trip, passengers told police.

The passengers had already paid $2,800 for the trip and refused to pay more, so Chen took his keys and got off the bus, police said. A backup driver who was also on the bus took over for Chen and continued the trip after Chen was arrested, police said.

This whole thing is a complete freakshow, really. The article goes on to say that there is no 'New Oriental Tours' listed in the Brooklyn directory. Hmm. Think you could get yer hands on a bus, easily, and use it to pull of a mass kidnapping?

Interesting thought, no?
