School bus driver nabbed




A school bus driver was apprehended near Tzipori on Wednesday afternoon after driving inebriated down Route 70 with 30 schoolchildren on board, among them his own daughter. Police became suspicious after a local schoolteacher called in to say that a driver who appeared to be drunk had picked up her students. Shortly thereafter, police erected roadblocks along the driver's route, effectively trapping him and forcing him to get off the road. Upon inspecting the vehicle, police found cognac and vodka bottles strewn among the seats.
