New York bus driver arrested for DWI sues police

A Long Island school bus driver who was falsely accused of DWI by the police has sued, claiming that their arrest delayed him getting medical treatment and caused harm to his reputation. The school bus driver, 48, from Deer Park, had four children on his bus when he drove it into a parked car in Farmingdale. While none of the children suffered any injury, paramedics on the scene said that the driver needed to be hospitalized. However, the police officer at the scene was certain that the driver was under the influence. Despite the driver passing three Breathalyzer tests, the driver was taken to the precinct on suspicion on driving while intoxicated.
