JACKSONVILLE, AR--It's a highway hijacking caught on camera. The story made national headlines when a man with a knife held up the school bus full of kids in Jacksonville, back in October. Now, new 911 calls and new dash cam video are giving us a closer look at what happened on board. One of the callers, telling the dispatcher that minutes before the hijacking, the suspect, Nicholas Miller, asked her to take him to his car. But just when she told him she didn't have a car , Bus 47, bound for Pinewood Elementary, pulled up with the door opened. That's when police say, Miller got on the bus, with a knife, starting a chase from Jacksonville to Cabot. Several witnesses called 911 in the process. "I'm so scared right now. It's okay calm down," says one caller. "It was like he was drunk. He never stayed in his lane. He said how do you open this door. When he went to punch the button, I grabbed the babies and said lets go. I got them all out and then i jumped out." The chase finally ended just outside of Cabot, with Miller's arrest. All eleven elementary students were safe. And the bus driver, honored for her heroic response. Meanwhile, Miller is charged with 12 counts of kidnapping.
