DETROIT - Police say they've arrested a Detroit bus driver on suspicion of drunken driving after he struck a parked car and drove away with two passengers aboard.
The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press report the car was struck Tuesday night on the city's east side. Police say a man and his 3-year-old son were on the bus and got off later before the man called 911. No serious injuries were reported.
Wayne State University police stopped the Detroit Department of Transportation bus. DDOT Director Dan Dirks says in a statement to WWJ-AM the driver is suspended without pay.
Police say a preliminary breath test showed a blood-alcohol level of 0.20 percent, exceeding Michigan's threshold of 0.08 percent. In Michigan, drivers with a 0.17 percent level are considered "super drunk."
