Maass was a passenger on the bus headed to Oklahoma early Monday. Witnesses say he got into a fight with his brother, started talking about how someone was following him and jumped over a barrier where the bus driver was sitting, and grabbed the steering wheel.
The bus was going around 60 miles an hour on I-40 and hit a concrete barrier, seriously injuring the driver and hospitalizing two others. The pretrial detention request now heads to district court.
