Officials say the uniformed trainee, armed with a rifle, hijacked the bus near Columbia, South Carolina and ordered the driver to take him to the next town. The 23-year-old eventually let the children and driver off unharmed. He was later arrested and now faces 19 kidnapping charges. Officials believe it was a desperate attempt to leave training and get home to New Jersey.
