A female driver has been arrested by the Police in Illinois, USA, for drinking while driving kids to school. The driver, Michelle Passley, started her job on a good note in the morning of November 5, 2019. But after going one trip, she stopped by a gas station to buy some beer – 2 cans precisely.
Passley was "enjoying" herself at the expense of the children's safety
As seen in footages captured by a surveillance camera, Passley, 42, kept the drinks in a brown-colored bag, and continuously took shots while she drove the bus. According to the Police in Aurora, no fewer than 32 primary school pupils were conveyed on the bus. It was revealed that Michelle was not directly employed by the school, but a busing company contracted.
