Did anyone see this on the Ch 8 news where 2 drunks, a man and a woman, got on a school bus in Craigsville and rode the bus to Richwood to school and were arrested when they got off of it? I can't imagine a bus driver letting 2 people, who weren't even students, and drunk, ride that far with a bus load of kids! Anyone know these people? The guy was a Johnson and the woman had a different name.
I seen that and thought, seriously who was the bus driver and why did he even let them on the bus?????
Pitiful for them to be drunk and that time of morning but I'm glad they were arrested. Seems there's a lot more to this story though lol.

That bus driver needs to go through a safety course for the sake of the children. No one like that should be permitted to get on a bus filled with children. Now punish the drive and teach him a lesson.

Why were they permitted to get on the bus in the first place? Maybe he didnt handle it so well, if he let them ride all the way to Richwood, before the police got them? Who knows who will be hitching a ride on the bus next time? Just a thought !!

He's driven that route many times. Maybe he recognized them after they got on the bus. Everyone is safe. Where is all this Christian love? The ones I see complaining on facebook are supposed to be Christian ladies. Doesn't sound that way to me. Did you ever think this could be a teaching oppurtunity for your kids?

I can't believe how this is not a major concern to the people in this area. Aren't you people outraged?? Questions for the BOE as to how this could possibly happen? This county is the laughing stock of the state.

You must be a moron to think it was handled well, those drunks should have never been allowed on that bus with our children. I agree the bus driver should suffer some serious punishment for letting them on the bus in the first place. It is a school bus not a taxi cab for drunks and druggies. It does not matter if any harm came to the children or not, I do not want my child subjected to some drunks on there school bus. It is not right and the bus driver should have known better.

ayla hodges is about 19...if she told the driver she was in high school on the first day of school how would he know?.....if she had been a student and he put her off the bus and then she got hit by a car or something then you would be blaming the driver again....I think he probably acted properly.

This could have happened anywhere and actually it has on occasion. They were young enough and the first day so he thought they were students. THe only way to prevent this would be to have the bus driver have photo id's of the kids and the kids have photo id's to prove who they are. That would cost a lot of money. No one was hurt and I also think the driver acted appropriately considering the circumstances.

BIG DEAL!!!!!!!!!! what is it exactly that you're worried about? those two drunks could care less about some stupid loud-mouthed kids on a bus. and i would have picked them up too. if theyre on a bus, theyre not driving or wondering around town gettin into stuf. so dont worry about youre precious little brats, NOBODY CARES

I think it's sad that people like to judge what they know nothing about! Things were handled by protocol and in a safe manner at the right time and place. This driver does care about your kids and their safety. Talk to the kids, were they hurt, scared, etc? Things was handled at a safe place, by the right authority. I would like to thank people working together to keep our children safe. And to the ones who like to judge, try doing it yourself if you think it's an easy job. Also I would like to thank the kids. He has a good group of children that are disiplined so when things do arise they knew what to do, not to create a bad scene, I just wish parents was as good.

how dare you take up for this driver. he should be fired. if my child were on that bus they would do something about him.I promise you that. all parents do not think that it is ok for there children to be around drunks.

#1 how was he supposed to know they were drunk?
#2 at the age of 19 & 21 they looked like students stop how was the driver to know they weren't students?
#3 what exactly is it that you think you would have them do about it?(I'm gonna guess here that you also would have something done about him if he didn't recognize your child & therefore didn't let your child on the bus)
Another poster said something about the fact that they were allowed to stay on the bus all the way into richwood and someone else quivered what if next time it was someone with a gun.
I don't know the emergency plan for things like this in nicholas county but school systems do have plans for situations such as this. If the driver had sipped the bus before reaching the school the drinks would have known something was wrong & then may have, in a panic, hurt one of the children. The situation was handled by protocol otherwise the driver would have faced consequences. & as far as what if next time there is a gun we'll even more reason for you to feel relief that the bus driver will follow protocol. & truly its more like that if a gun is brought into school property it'll b by a student bit some random drunk
