A private school bus driver was arrested Thursday afternoon and charged with driving while intoxicated as she was on her way to pick up developmentally disabled children in Montclair, N.J.

The driver, Elizabeth Anaya, 62, of Jersey City apparently had an empty bottle of rum in her jacket pocket and an open can of beer in between her legs, according to the Jersey Tomato.

She was stopped after Montclair Sheriff Armando Fontoura said sheriff’s detectives observed a Hudson County Transport school bus run a red light at Bloomfield Avenue and Municipal Plaza in Bloomfield at 2:45 p.m., almost striking another vehicle.

The school bus was pulled over immediately and that's where officers detected the strong odor of alcohol, the report said.
