Specifically, he wanted to know when the bus was arriving. MSP said the two weren't able to determine when that would happen and the trooper offered a ride, which was accepted.

The trooper asked for a pat down before giving him a ride in his car - which was agreed upon. 

That's when the loaded 9 mm Smith & Wesson was found in his waistband. The teenager from Detroit was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon and returned to the custody of his parents, pending review by the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office.
