BERLIN, Vt. (WCAX) - Police say a Montpelier man was driving drunk while following a school bus.

Berlin Police say they received complaints of someone driving erratically behind a school bus over several days.

On Monday, they sent a DUI enforcement officer out on Route 12 after the bus route was finished. That’s when they say they caught Curtis Bevington speeding.

Investigators say Bevington showed signs of extreme impairment from alcohol and after standard field sobriety tests, police confirmed he was drunk.

They also learned he was driving with an expired license and had court-ordered conditions not to operate a vehicle or drink.

Bevington was arrested and his vehicle was towed.

Police say no one was injured in the incident and they are grateful it didn’t turn out to have a more serious or deadly outcome.
