State troopers in Ohio say two Greyhound passengers have been arrested after making a bomb threat against the bus they were onboard.

The threat shut down Interstate 90 outside of Cleveland for about three hours Friday night.

Authorities stopped the bus about 30 miles east of Cleveland and evacuated all of the passengers before searching the bus.

The State Highway Patrol says no explosives were found. The bus that was traveling from Buffalo, New York, to Cleveland continued on its route.

The two taken into custody are awaiting charges.
