PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — A trial has been delayed for the third time in New Hampshire for a passenger arrested in May during a nine-hour scare aboard a Greyhound bus in Portsmouth.

Twenty-nine-year-old Calvin Segar of New York has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of obstruction of governmental administration. Police say he gave two false names and refused to be fingerprinted while the bomb report was investigated. Previous trial dates met with scheduling conflicts; a new date hasn’t been set.

The Portsmouth Herald reports another passenger, 68-year-old John Smolens of Lewiston, Maine, is scheduled for trial Nov. 23 on a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest.

Numerous law enforcement officers answered a report of a possible bomb on the bus. No bomb was found.
