School bus driver Martha Thompson gets jail time for drunken driving with kids onboard

A drunk school bus driver’s wild and dangerous ride has ended with her in jail.

Martha Thompson of upstate Almond, N.Y. was sentenced Monday to 90 days in jail and six months of home monitoring for the May 8, 2009 incident driving school kids while intoxicated.

Video from the Alfred-Almond school district bus shows several teenage girls pleading with Thompson to pull over after she missed a turn and drove the bus in reverse.

The girls then led some of the younger students out the back of the bus as the 56-year-old Thompson yells at them to remain on board.

Thompson, 56, pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and to 37 counts of reckless endangerment - one for each student on the bus - on Nov. 2, and was also fined $1,000 in Allegany County Court.
