Pittsburgh, PA (The Weekly Vice) – Brian Dunlap, a 38-year-old bus driver was jailed after he took a bus full of students on an adventure packed field trip.
According to Pittsburgh police, Dunlap was hired by the “Pittsburgh Cares” organization to transport 15 Pittsburgh Carrick High School students to Carnegie Hall Science Center.
When they arrived at the Science Center, Dunlop laughed as he nearly hit a pole and had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.
When leaving the center, Dunlop became increasingly intoxicated until he ran a red light, forcing the aide to call 911.
Dunlop underwent a field sobriety test and was taken to the police station for further testing where experts concluded he was not under the influence of alcohol, but possibly a controlled substance and deemed unfit to operate a vehicle. He was transported to UPMC Mercy for further tests and then taken to jail.
Parents were called to pick up their children and take them home.
Dunlop was booked into Allegheny County jail and charged with a DUI, 2 counts of recklessly endangering another person, and 15 counts endangering the welfare of a child. Bond information was not available.
