New Jersey School Bus Driver Accused of DUI

Authorities arrested a New Jersey bus driver after children on a school bus called their parents to report the woman swerving and falling asleep behind the wheel.

Carole Crockett, 46, faces 25 counts of driving under the influence with a minor and child endangerment, the Courier-Post of Cherry Hill reported. 

Students reportedly called their parents complaining of Crockett's driving. The parents then called Westampton Middle School, which alerted police.

Officers were dispatched to the area and found Crockett at Holly Hills School trying to pick up more students. She was arrested on the spot. 

The newspaper reported Crockett's breath test showed she had a blood-alcohol level of .25 percent. The state's legal limit is .08.

Bail was set for Crockett at $10,000 for the disorderly conduct offense, according to the newspaper. Superior Court Judge Michael Haas set bail on the endangering charges at $75,000

Crockett was released after posting bail. Her next court date is Nov. 17.
