Nearly 1 year after incident, bus driver pleads guilty to DUI

Nearly one year ago, a school bus driver was accused of driving under the influence with a bus full of children and parents on a field trip ("DUI suspected of school bus driver in Utah," Oct. 20, 2014). Recently, she pleaded guilty to DUI and could spend up to a year in jail. Her sentencing is currently scheduled for Dec. 7.

Utah residents who keep up with celebrity divorces most likely already know that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are ending their marriage. Instead of going out in dramatic Hollywood fashion, they have chosen to keep their divorce amicable by using mediation to resolve their issues.

Why do police officers perform DUI tests before making an arrest?

Police officers are required to have probable cause (a legal reason) before they can make a traffic stop.

This is why they are supposed to be trained to identify certain behavioral patterns and perform preliminary on site DUI tests.
