Substitute bus driver faces drugged driving charges in California

Bus drivers have difficult jobs and learning to navigate a bus route can be challenging at times. When a driver is asked to fill in for another party on short notice, he or she might not always be aware of the exact route the primary driver takes and any deviations in route could leave the driver behind on schedule or more susceptible to becoming lost. A recent incident in which authorities received complaints about a substitute bus driver has left a 55-year-old woman in California accused of drugged driving.

According to reports, authorities say they received a call from a child complaining about the behavior of the bus driver on a recent Monday. They say the child informed them that the substitute driver was speeding and had taken the wrong route. Police say they were able to locate the bus soon thereafter and proceeded to initiate a traffic stop.

Many of the details pertaining to what took place during the stop remain unclear. However, authorities have advised that the woman was subsequently taken into custody on suspicion of driving while under the influence of drugs. She is now facing multiple charges in relation to the incident, including drugged driving and child endangerment.

Being accused of drugged driving can be a stressful and daunting experience and the outcome of the situation could have a significant impact on one's life. Those who face similar charges and wish to gain insight on how best to prepare for what comes next could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney in California can work toward protecting a client's legal rights and assist in forming a strong defense for use during subsequent court proceedings.
