PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police have charged a Pittsburgh Public Schools employee with driving a school van while under the influence of medication or some other kind of drug.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for 37-year-old William Jester, who also doesn’t have a phone listed at the address listed for him in court records.
City police arrested Jester at a school building parking lot where detectives followed him after seeing the van being driven erratically on Thursday. Police say Jester crossed the center line of the road and nearly crashed several times before he stopped.
Jester denied drinking, but police say he told them he was on medication. Blood test results were still pending Friday.
School district spokeswoman Ebony Pugh says Jester has been suspended. She says he was driving a school van that isn’t used to transport students.
