PORTAGE, Mich. (WOOD) – As her school bus left a Kalamazoo County mall with 35 other Coloma Junior High School honor students, eighth-grader Kristin Potter said the driver made a “crazy turn and flung one of our students onto the floor. And that’s when we saw the flashing lights.”

The 14-year-old figured the police would simply drive around the bus, but instead, Potter said police stopped it. The driver got out and never got back in.

Jennifer Lynne Moore was arrested Friday and formally charged Monday with driving while intoxicated — and driving while intoxicated with an occupant younger than 16 years old. If convicted, she could go to prison for up to five years.
