Local Bus Driver Arrested: DUIFri, 09/03/2012 - 8:51pm — Josh Hampton



An on-duty Butler County school bus driver was arrested on Friday afternoon and charged with DUI. Sandra Ford (Blair), 55, is charged with multiple counts following her arrest by Butler County Sheriff Scottie Ward.

According to Ward he received a call at approximately 4:45 p.m. that Ford was operating Butler County Schools bus #30 while intoxicated. The call came form a parent who learned of Ford’s alleged condition from their child, who was a passenger on the bus.

Ward said that he went to the Butler County Board of Education and met with Superintendent Scott Howard and Transportation Director Ken Reed about the call. The sheriff said it was necessary to involve the school system because he didn’t know the route of the bus, nor does he have any way to get in radio contact with the bus.

Within moments of hearing of the complaint Ward said Ken Reed contacted the bus by radio. Reed then left to go meet the bus along with Cindy McCoy. Ward said that he later met Reed and Sandra Ford at the Butler County Education Complex where he administered two field sobriety tests. Ford failed both tests, and was then arrested and charged with DUI 1st (aggravated circumstances), and 40 counts of Wanton Endangerment in the First Degree.

The sheriff explained that the aggravated circumstances added to the DUI charge was because Ford’s blood alcohol content (BAC) was .192. Aggravated circumstances can be added to a DUI charge if the offender’s BAC is .150 or higher. Under Kentucky law a person is considered legally intoxicated if their blood alcohol content is .08 or higher. The number of wanton endangerment charges is based upon the number of students traveling on the bus. The estimate of 40 was given to Ward by Transportation Director Ken Reed.

Cindy McCoy took over driving duties aboard bus #30 and finished the remainder of Ford’s route on Friday without incident.

Isn't she the one that calls herself a christian and writes in the paper about love, forgiveness, being a good person? I am so confused, I know people make mistakes but jeopardizing peoples children isn't something that just happens out of the blue. Someone somewhere had to see this coming. Someone did a lot of praying, God sure did expose her before kids were hurt!

God has nothing to do with her decision. It is about an adult women entrusted with a job of transporting students to and from school/events. God didn't put the alcohol in her hand, SHE made that decision. Where God did come into this issue was guiding those children home safely due to the fact Sandra chose to put them in danger by consuming alcohol. And Yes I have known her a very long time and she can be very charming and display compassion but she is NOT who is pretends to be and has been a phony for as long as I have known her.

If god or jesus or allah or jah or whatever was guiding her hand to keep the bus on the road, he also guided her hand to bring the bottle to her lips. Leave your ignorant faith based BS out of our reality.

More like God holding the hands and protecting those kids who were left in her care. You know, believing or not, there is no reason to be disrespectful to other people's beliefs.

That was just ugly and uncalled for.

It's sickening to think that every time something bad happens, people look at how it could have been worse and actually believe some space being kept it from being worse. Said space being should never have let it happen in the first place, especially if they are an all knowing and all seeing entity who has shaped our lives before they began.
This may not be the time or place for a theological discussion, but I am disgusted to the point of being ugly and uncalled for.
