Bus Driver Transporting Students Charged With DUI

Charter Bus

Maryland State Police arrested the driver of a Delaware charter bus, charging the man with driving under the influence of alcohol. At the time of his arrest, the man was taking students from Bennett Middle School, in Salisbury, home from a field trip.

According to police reports, the students had adult chaperones on the trip, who suspected that the driver was intoxicated after the driver began to weave all over the road. Fearing for their safety and the safety of the students, they put together a plan, where one of the parents faked an illness so that others could call 911. When state troopers arrived, they were informed of the parents’ concerns. A breathalyzer was administered and the driver was taken into custody. Officials say no one was injured in the incident.
