POWELL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – A woman was taken into custody in view of school children after authorities say she wandered onto a school bus intoxicated.

Powell County Schools sent out a letter to parents informing them that the incident occurred during the morning bus ride to Clay City Elementary.

“…we are making you aware that an un-enrolled student stepped onto your child’s bus this morning. The driver was aware and radioed for assistance.”

The bus drove to the school and was met by a school resource officer. The SRO said the woman was intoxicated and placed her under arrest.

The woman has not been identified.
