On December 16th, terrified students took photos of Pixley, who fell asleep at the wheel nearly a dozen times that day, according to police.
According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Pixley told police that on the day in question, he had taken methadone - but that he was no longer a drug addict. Bus company Landmark Student Transportation said he passed a drug screening when hired in July.
Pixley has been fired but not because of his arrest - he hadn't shown up for work since the day cops pulled him off the bus.
He is due back in court on February 22.
