LONGVIEW, Wash (KGW) — Newly released video shows what happened on a Longview school bus when a driver who was allegedly drunk behind the wheel picked up and dropped off students.
Catherine L. Maccarone, who has resigned as a Longview Public Schools bus driver, is seen on video yelling at students, sometimes cursing at them, rambling about her relationships and often just incoherently going on about nothing while she completed two bus routes with high school and elementary students.
Maccarone, 48, faces charges of DUI and two counts of reckless endangerment. She resigned from her position with Longview Public Schools on Thursday, Sept. 26.
The nearly two hours of video from Sept. 12, obtained by KGW with a public records request, shows Maccarone rambling with and without kids on board. Before she picks up high school students she is seen speaking directly into the camera, appearing to send a message to her bosses.
