A School bus driver who was busted ferrying three busloads of students while under the influence of alcohol has been charged with driving drunk in his own vehicle less than 17 hours later.
Miguel Rivera, of Washington, Pennsylvania, was fired from his job after he was caught driving 147 students while over the legal alcohol limit on Friday morning.
And at 2.30am the next day, police pulled Rivera over for drink driving down a motorway in his own car.
On Friday morning, Rivera was scheduled to make three runs to carry the Washington Park School students on a field trip but before the third group set off by teachers said they smelt alcohol on Rivera’s breath and called the police.
Rivera blew .081 on a breathalyzer test and was charged shortly after 10am. He now faces 147 charges of endangering the welfare of children.
Police say Rivera’s blood-alcohol content was 0.08 per cent 30 minutes after he drove the school students.
Shocking: Rivera blew .081 on a breathalyzer test 30 minutes after driving Washington Park School students on a field trip
That’s the legal limit for drunk driving under normal circumstances, but is four times the state’s legal limit of 0.02 percent for a commercial vehicle driver.
