CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) — The driver of a school bus carrying nine high school students home was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI and misdemeanor failure to stop, Chandler police and school officials said Friday.
A police officer on Thursday saw the bus commit a red-light violation at an intersection before the driver ignored two attempts by police to get him to pull over and stop, police said in a statement.
The driver eventually stopped and the driver was arrested following field sobriety tests, police said.
Meanwhile, the students on the bus were provided alternative transportation.
It wasn’t clear whether the man had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
Police said charges were pending results of toxicology tests, and a Maricopa County Superior Court spokeswoman said no records were immediately available.
Chandler Unified School District officials said the driver was placed on administrative leave and that a new driver was placed on the arrested man’s route while an investigation is conducted.
