Houston school bus driver was arrested for driving recklessly. Police say she was caught driving the bus full of children while drunk. The bus driver claims it was an upset stomach that caused her bad driving, adding that she got sick from a donut she ate at school.

Linda Sue Godejohn, 55, was charged with driving while intoxicated after police say she failed a field sobriety test “miserably” when they pulled her over in Spring, Texas on Thursday afternoon. Godejohn posted a $100 bond and was released from the Harris County Jail on Friday morning

“We ended up getting the bus driver out of the bus, giving her a field sobriety test, which she flunked miserably, and she was immediately placed into custody,” Constable Mark Herman told Click2Houston.

Bystanders say they noticed her bus moving erratically and called 911. A witness says the bus swerved onto the left shoulder of a road, hitting a divider before veering back.

“When she hit the wall, I was, like, ‘Woah, she’s about to flip,’ because it wasn’t just a little tap, she was on the wall, the tire started to crawl up on the wall,” a witness told Click2Houston.

ABC13 reporter Courtney Fischer asked 55-year-old Linda Godejohn about the DWI charges against her as Godejohn left jail Friday morning after posting $100 bond.

“They keep saying that I have been drinking. I don’t drink. I haven’t had a drink in years,” Godejohn said.

“How do you explain failing a field sobriety test?” Courtney asked.

“It’s hard. I couldn’t even do it right now,” Godejohn responded.
Godejohn also said that she wasn’t on any medication. When pressed about the matter, Godejohn said she’d had a doughnut that made her sick, triggering the erratic driving.

“They’ve been riding all year long. Nothing has changed. Except I got something from the school to eat. It had made me sick,” Godejohn said.

“My stomach was hurting so bad that my wheel fell off the thing, the curb. That’s all it was. It was going at 45 mph. It’s going to whip back,” she explained.

So far there have been no other reports of people getting sick.
