School Bus Driver Arrested for Drinking Beer While Driving Morning Route
File this one under ‘What the hell were they thinking???’
A school bus driver in Aurora, Illinois was arrested and eventually terminated after she was spotted buying beer in a convenience store while the kids waited outside in the bus.
Someone in the convenience store alerted the company she worked for, who then reported it to police.
The police department’s investigation found that not only did she buy the beer while the kids were outside, she was steadily swilling it while driving her route.
Here’s the statement from the Aurora Police Department's Facebook Page, "44-year-old Michelle Passley was arrested and charged with two Class A Misdemeanors counts of Endangering the Life/Health of a Child. Aurora Police also contacted the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office to review Passley’s Commercial Driver’s License."
I think it’s safe to say her bus driving days are over.
