Canadian Man in Custody After Bus Bomb Threat
Houlton - After a nearly nine hour standoff with authorities in Houlton, a Canadian citizen is in custody.
The tense stand-off began around nine o'clock last night aboard a Cyr bus with seven passengers on board.
50-year-old Daniel Maccabee reportedly told the driver he didn't want to stop in Houlton and wanted to proceed into Canada.
He then reportedly showed the bus driver what appeared to be a detonator connected by three wires to a bulge under his jacket.
The driver did stop in Houlton at the Irving Big Stop on Route One as originally scheduled.
According to authorities, three female passengers were assaulted before they got off the bus.
The Maine State Police Tactical Team and a bomb squad were called to the scene.
Police say Maccabee told them he wanted asylum at the Israeli consulate in Ottawa.
Around 4:30 this morning, Maccabee surrendered to police without incident.
Police say the device thought to be a detonator was actually a video game controller connected with wires, duct tape along with a spiral bound notebook.
