Three people were arrested on Jacksonville’s north side after an argument at a bus stop this morning.
Jacksonville Police were called to the 1100 block of King Street at 7:32AM after a caller reported a large physical disturbance at a bus stop.
Upon arrival, police separated several individuals from a fight outside a stopped bus and also removed an adult from the bus. According to a police report, 39 year old Daniel T. Ochs of the 1100 block of North Diamond Street was arrested and cited for aggravated battery and disorderly conduct after boarding the bus without permission, refusing to get off the bus when commanded to do so, and then getting into a physical altercation with the bus driver alarming students on board the bus. 33 year old Heather N.

Werries, also of the 1100 block of North Diamond, was arrested and cited for disorderly conduct after police say she boarded the bus without permission, yelled and alarmed students.
