Default Bus Driver - Drinking and Driving

http://www.sltrib.com/utah/ci_3623354


FRUITLAND, Idaho - Police are asking prosecutors to charge a local school bus driver with drunken driving and possibly 21 counts of child endangerment.

Fruitland School District officials got an anonymous tip last week that a 45-year-old female driver might have been driving a loaded school bus while drunk, said J.D. Huff, a Fruitland police detective. When the woman finished her route, Huff said, school district administrators had her undergo alcohol breath tests through a private testing company.

The driver'* blood alcohol level was nearly four times the .04 legal intoxication threshold for a commercial driver, Huff said. The intoxication threshold for noncommercial drivers is .08. After taking the breath test, the woman reportedly resigned, Huff said. Fruitland police got involved two days later, when school district officials turned over the resultsof their investigation.

''We believe that we've got a pretty good case for upwards of 20 charges of child endangerment - one charge for each kid that was actually on the bus - along with DUI,'' Huff said Monday, adding there were at least 21 children on the bus. Police were interviewing the children.

Huff said any charges would likely be filed next week. No prosecutor'* office spokesperson was immediately reachable Monday evening to comment........



Now that is messed up

I like my beer better than most but there is a line and the driver crossed it by a mile. Hope they make every charge stick. Bus driving school children must be mentally exhausting, but I hear the above story alot lately and the buses are unsafe tin cans on wheels. So nail him to the wall so others might think twice.

Honestly I wondered about a bus driver back in Jr. High. He was cool, listened to good music..and believed playing bumper bus with the one or two in front of him helped get us home quicker...lol

Think he took out a stop sign at one tight turn pickup also.
