School bus driver arrested for drinking beer while driving children

A school bus driver in Illinois has been arrested and fired after surveillance video caught her drinking from two beer cans while transporting elementary school students. An investigation was launched into Michelle Passley, 44, when a store clerk called the school district to say they had sold two cans of beer to a woman on November 15 — only for her to step on to a school bus and drive away.

"Passley was charged with two counts of endangering the life/health of a child." Why only two counts as there were 38 children on that bus? She was released on a $100 bond -- something seems way off on this whole thing.

Absolutely bonkers. She is driving the school bus and pulls up to a convenience store to buy a couple of beers. The clerk sees the bus she came out of, sells her the beers, then calls the school. She gets on the bus and "hides" the beers in brown paper backs. Because everyone drinks their diet coke from brown paper bags. Wonder how long she has been doing this. Jeez.

Pfft what an amateur, I bet even the kids knew that you're supposed to hide alcohol in a super sized McDonald's cup. 🙄 (Disclaimer: This post was for sarcasm purposes only, if you actually try to drink and drive with a McDonal''s cup of alcohol yo''re a moron and I hope that Law Enforcement catches your dumbass before you kill somebody.)
