Woman arrested behind wheel of school bus for violating DUI law

Although no one was injured, a Georgia woman is in hot water after allegedly driving a school bus that she did not have permission to access. Police ultimately arrested her for driving without a license, felony theft, violating DUI law and various other allegations. It is not clear if she has been granted bail, but authorities are still continuing their investigation.

Police were notified that a school bus had struck another vehicle at about 4:30 p.m. When they arrived at the scene, they apparently found the 41-year-old woman behind the wheel. When pressed for an explanation, the woman first disclosed that she had been the victim of an assault at a house, although it is not clear if it was her own residence. Following the assault, she supposedly took the bus from a nearby house to leave. She did strike another vehicle during the drive, although it does not appear that the driver was injured.

According to reports, there was some damage inside of the bus, and responding officers determined that the woman was likely under the influence of alcohol. It is not clear what measures they used to determine her level of intoxication, although it is possible that a Breathalyzer or blood test might have been employed. The Georgia State Patrol also helped with the investigation following her arrest.

Driving while under the influence of alcohol is typically considered to be a serious violation of the law in Georgia, and it can be especially overwhelming when combined with additional charges. Although requesting an administrative hearing with regard to any immediate license suspension might not be feasible if a license was previously suspended for different reasons, it is still possible to achieve a favorable outcome from proceedings in criminal court. Most defendants find that careful review of the charges and evidence alongside their counsel is an exceptionally important aspect of preparing to handle the charges, and it can often yield further insight into how best to proceed.
