BUS DRIVER-DRINKING
Ohio school bus driver accused of drunken driving with students on board gets 5 days in jail

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, February 11, 2014 2:32 PM EST
COLUMBUS, Ohio


A central Ohio woman accused of drunken driving on a school bus with two young students aboard is serving five days in jail.

Former Columbus bus driver Tia Denton had pleaded guilty to single misdemeanor charges of drunken driving and endangering children. A judge on Tuesday sentenced the 51-year-old Denton to 180 days in jail on each count and suspended all but five days.

Authorities say Denton was driving erratically and had a blood alcohol content that was more than twice the legal limit when she was stopped while driving a bus in November. Denton later resigned.

Denton's attorney previously said she would enter an alcohol treatment program. Attorney Eric Nordman didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment Tuesday.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Denton started serving her sentence Tuesday.
