A Texas school bus driver who was allegedly intoxicated while driving with children on the bus says a stomach ache affected her judgment.
Click Houston reports Linda Sue Godejohn,55, failed a sobriety test last week after she was pulled over by police. Police are planning to upgrade her charges since one of the passengers were under the age of 14. She posted a $100 bond from the Harris County Jail and said she barely drinks then blamed her driving on eating a bad donut.
“My stomach was just hurting so bad that a wheel fell off the thing, the curb. That’s all it was, and going 45 mph, it’s going to whip back”
