A Washington state bus driver, was arrested earlier this month and accused of drunk driving with a bus full of children, and her alleged erratic behavior was captured in a newly-released video of the children screaming.

Catherine Maccarone, 48, has worked for the Longview School District on Sept. 12 and one of them was taken after a 10-year-old student that she had just dropped off called 911 to report she “was drunk.”

“Umm, yes, hello, my mother has not to speak, because they don’t speak English, but we just got out of the bus, me and my friend. And the number 8, there has been a bus driver, and Catherine, she was drunk,” the fifth-grader, is heard telling the operator, according to audio released by KGW-TV.

In a separate interview, the school district’s transportation manager, told the 911 Maccarone was said to be acting differently that day, “She was just screaming and yelling and cursing at the children, and that is not normal behavior.”

In what appears to be surveillance video taken on the bus ride from the school, and it was published by the CTR, Maccarone, if there are no children on the bus, saying their marriage is “it sucks”, and her husband was “a son-of-a-gun.”

“There is no one on the bus,” she said in a telephone interview, to find that the cameras are filming her. “Technically, the only stupid thing that happened, and you have to look at it… no, no, I am not a fool.”

Later, when the children are on the bus, they should tell the kids, “I said as the bus drivers will need to be a little bit crazy?”, while making hand gestures to indicate “a little.”

“I’m an idiot! I’m totally in love with! I’m so fun and crazy! “Because I’m in love with the life,” Maccarone said. “The majority of people, they’re like, oh, well still, and they don’t have to say anything, I’m just very happy and silly, and funny, and you’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, she’s crazy!’ I am not a fool. I graduated from college three different times.”

The bus driver talks with the student about math and what they do not have a place in the university, but it should be before saying, “Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no” repeatedly.

If it does, it will no longer have to go straight to it, and the kids move in their seats when they begin to cry.

Maccarone was arrested and placed on administrative leave. The researchers said that there were no children on the bus when she was arrested, but Maccarone was almost done with the first two of the next-to-school bus routes, which are recorded off of 90 students. She allegedly had a blood-alcohol level of over .09, above the legal limit.
