Man pleads guilty to disorderly conduct charge following Greyhound bus incident
RACINE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) – The man accused of creating a disturbance on-board a Greyhound bus from Milwaukee on January 12 pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge in court on Monday.
A judge gave Margarito Vargas-Rosas credit for 52 days served in jail. He will be deported once released from custody.
The state decided to drop the charge of making terrorist threats. Police say on the bus from Milwaukee to Chicago, Vargas-Rosas was arguing with another person and implied he had a gun. The bus was stopped just over the state line and Vargas-Rosas was taken into custody. A gun was never found and his lawyer says he was intoxicated during the incident.
“The defendant doesn’t have any prior record,” Racine County Circuit Court Judge Mark Nielsen said. “Apparently, this boils down to a drunken belligerent man acting like a fool.”
Vargas-Rosas didn’t testify at the sentencing.
