CHICAGO -- The man accused of threatening to kill fellow passengers on a Greyhound Bus from Milwaukee to Chicago made his first court appearance Sunday. 

33-year-old Margariot Vargas-Rosas is charged with making terrorist threats. Passengers say he threatened to shoot and kill others on the bus Friday night. 

Authorities chased the bus into Illinois where Vargas-Rosas was arrested.

A judge ordered him to be held without bond until his next court hearing -- which is scheduled to take place on Wednesday.
