Drunk school bus driver

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A school bus driver was arrested last week after she took students to McDonalds to buy herself some breakfast while drunk, according to police.

Officials arrested 29-year-old Lashonda Griffin at the Gates Chili School District’s bus depot in Rochester on Friday after dropping off her bus and passing out with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit.

Six students, ages 5 to 16-years-old were on the bus to Northstar Christian Academy in Rochester that morning, reported.

One of the students said Griffin told the kids, “We’re going to stop at McDonald’s quick, don’t tell nobody,” WROC reported.

At least two students were taken into the chain restaurant to pick up breakfast, the report adds.

Officials said no students were on the bus when she was found incapacitated behind the wheel and failed a sobriety test.

Griffin is facing multiple counts of DWI and child endangerment.
