Falsely Accused School Bus Driver Exonerated by Police

  • By

On Wednesday, Nov. 4, a call went out to authorities shortly before 12:30 p.m., reporting a St. Mary’s County School bus had a driver that smelled of alcohol. Students that were on the bus phoned their parents and told the parents that their driver smelled like alcohol resulting in a call to police.

Local police initiated a search for the bus in question. St. Mary’s Sheriff’s Deputies located and stopped the bus as it was making a stop at Great Mills High School loaded with children.

Units from Maryland State Police and the Sheriff’s office questioned the driver and called for an additional unit with a breathalyzer. The St. Mary’s County Public School officials arrived on the scene and made arrangements for another bus driver to continue the bus route while police investigated the incident.

After a thorough investigation by both police and St. Mary's County Public Schools officials and after being tested, the driver of the bus proved that he was not under the influence and was released.
