School Bus Driver gets 2 DUI's within 17 hours.


A western Pennsylvania man fired after he was charged with DUI while driving three busloads of students and has been charged with driving drunk (DUI) in his own vehicle less than 17 hours later.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 49-year-old Miguel Rivera, of Washington, Pa.

He was first charged shortly after 10 a.m. Friday when police say he was legally drunk while driving 142 students to a field trip from Washington Park School.

State police then stopped Rivera about 2:30 a.m. Saturday for DUI as he exited Interstate 70, also in Washington.

Police say Rivera's blood-alcohol content (BAC) was 0.08 percent 30 minutes after he drove the school students. That's the legal limit for DUI under normal circumstances, but was four times the state's legal limit for a person's BAC of 0.02 percent for a commercial vehicle driver.
