Truck covered in anti-government messages shuts down I-70 for hours

Topeka

I can't see the truck well enough to make out what the words, but that's what the Cap-Journal reports.

Via AP:

A 50-year-old Arkansas man was arrested Monday after a hazardous-materials incident prompted the hours-long closing of about 20 miles of Interstate 70 west of Topeka.

The closing began around 1:15 p.m. Monday, and the Kansas Department of Transportation said it could last until midnight or later.

The incident began when dispatchers in Junction City received an anonymous call Monday morning about hazardous materials in a room at a Ramada Inn. The motel was evacuated.
