School Bus Driver DUI – A New Jersey school bus driver was arrested on DUI charges after the children she was taking home called their parents to complain about her driving.
Nervous pupils contacted their parents after Carole Crockett allegedly was seen falling asleep behind the wheel and swerving the bus she was driving in Westampton Township, the Courier-Post reported.
The parents called 911, and police caught up with Crockett at Holly Hills School, trying to pick up more students.
The 46 year old’s blood alcohol level was found to be .25 percent — more than three times the legal limit of .08 percent.
She faces 25 counts of driving under the influence with a minor and child endangerment.
Bail was set at $10,000 for the disorderly conduct offense. Superior Court judge Michael Haas set bail on the endangering charges at $75,000.
Crockett was released after posting bail. Her next court date is Nov. 17.
