Last month a Cache County school bus driver pleaded guilty to a class A misdemeanor DUI charge. Police encountered the bus driver after she had gotten into a fight with another motorist. Tamra Gustaveson, had a blood-alcohol level of .091 just 15 minutes after dropping elementary and middle school students off at school. To make matters worse, police officers found a gun on the bus that belonged to Gustaveson. A plea deal was arranged in which Gustaveson would plead guilty to the DUI misdemeanor and the state would drop the additional count of carrying a dangerous weapon while under the influence of alcohol. Gustaveson will spend 30 days in jail as part of her sentencing.
