Bus driver accused of DUI

A tour bus driver who was driving a high school band was taken into custody in Tennessee on April 21 after a police officer claimed that he had pill bottles and a powdery white substance in his nose. The man was charged with possession of a controlled substance, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and driving under the influence. However, the man is receiving support from his employer in Pennsylvania, a charter bus company, that also posted his bail. Reportedly, he is one of their top five drivers.
