Men arrested after fight at Macon Greyhound station

Two men were arrested Tuesday at the Spring Street Greyhound bus station after a group of people who missed their bus argued with clerks and shattered a glass window.

The bus had pulled into the station, located near the intersection of Spring Street and Riverside Drive, and let off passengers for a 15-minute break, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release.

When a deputy arrived, two men used profanity directed toward the deputy. One of them, 43-year-old Gene Tene, attempted to punch the deputy, according to the release.

The other man, Michael Joshua Costello, also fought the deputy. Both men, who are from Naperville, Illinois, were taken into custody after additional deputies arrived. The initial deputy was not injured, according to the release.

Tene and Costello are each charged with criminal damage to property and misdemeanor obstruction. Tene additionally is charged with simple battery against a police officer, according to the release.

Tene is being held on a $7,000 bond. Costello has a $3,700 bond.
