Idling Trailways bus in Spokane taken for a ride

SPOKANE -- Police say the driver of a Trailways bus left it idling for a short break Monday morning at the downtown Spokane bus and Amtrak station. That was enough time for a man to jump in and take if for a drive.
Police asked the public to help watch for the full-size white bus, and a citizen called 911 about an hour later to report it was just east of the city.
Police and sheriff's deputies responded. The bus pulled into a pizza parlor parking lot about seven miles from where it was stolen. The driver initially refused to cooperate but came out about 10 minutes later.
Police gave the 22-year-old a free ride to jail where he was booked for investigation of possessing a stolen vehicle.
