MOUNTAIN TOP, Pa. — A school bus driver in Eastern Pennsylvania has been charged with driving under the influence while a student was still on board.

The Scranton Times-Tribune reports police pulled over the Crestwood School District bus driver bus on Tuesday just before 6 p.m. because of a broken headlight.

According to a White Haven borough police affidavit, the officer observed the driver had glassy eyes, slurred speech, shaky hands and voice. The officer says the driver refused to step out of the vehicle because there was a child in the bus.

Police say she eventually exited after calling a supervisor and failed a number of sobriety tests.

Cindy Keil, 42, was also charged with endangering the welfare of children and resisting arrest.

It's not clear how the child got home.

No phone number or attorney is listed for Keil.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
