WTF! As if just getting a DUI wasn’t bad enough, she blew a .226, thats nearly 3 times the legal limit!! What a fucking cunt. Here’s some more from the report at

About 50 children from Lion’s Park Elementary School in Mount Prospect were aboard the bus, Mount Prospect police said.

Betty Burden, 54, was arrested around 3:45 p.m. She was charged with aggravated DUI of alcohol, authorities said. She appeared in court Wednesday morning in Rolling Meadows and Judge Kay Hanlon gave her a $10,000 bond.

Burden, who first started working for District 57 in 1991, registered a .230 blood-alcohol concentration level at the scene after police stopped the bus, prosecutors said.

One of Burden’s co-workers smelled alcohol Tuesday afternoon on Burden’s breath and told the district’s director of transportation, prosecutors said. The director noticed Burden appeared sleepy around 2:30 p.m. and followed the bus, police added. He then called police who stopped bus No. 11 and smelled alcohol on Burden’s breath while noticing she had bloodshot, watery eyes, authorities said.

OK, seriously?! One of her co-workers smelled alcohol on her breat and the director of transportation didn’t stop her from picking up a bus load of kids??? Instead they just followed the bus to see if she could drive it ok? What the fucking fuck. FUCK!
