Bus Driver Charged with DUI in Pennsylvania

A school bus driver from Swarthmore Pennsylvania has been charged with drunk driving while transporting a student. Christine Rogers was stopped by police Monday afternoon after a motorist called authorities about her erratic driving. Officers found an empty bottle of vodka and more liquor on the bus. At the time of the traffic stop, there was one student on board.

Rogers, 48, submitted to a preliminary breath test which registered a blood alcohol content of 0.374%. Pennsylvania DUI law sets the legal threshold for intoxication for all mototists at 0.08%. For school bus drivers the limit is 0.02%. With the combination of her job description and an exceptionally high BAC, Rogers is facing enhanced penalties for drunk driving in Pennsylvania.

The school district immediately fired Rogers following the arrest.
