Police to see if bus driver with .42 BAC drove CDTA bus

Troy police tell NEWS10 they're investigating whether a CDTA bus driver got behind the wheel of his bus with a blood alcohol level ten times the legal limit.

It started when the driver told police he was attacked Sunday night by a passenger.

He told them he drove the empty bus back to his house on 10th Street and had a drink. The driver says he then drove back to the bus station garage on Hoosick Street.

A blood alcohol test revealed he had a level of .42. A bus driver's legal limit is .04.

But because police did not witness the man driving they have not yet filed charges.
