TURLOCK, Calif. (CBS13) — A school bus driver was arrested for driving drunk on the way to take children to school, according to authorities.

Officers pulled over a Turlock Unified School District bus Saturday night after receiving 911 calls from drivers that reported erratic driving.

The California Highway Patrol confirmed that 39-year-old Lorna Gollihar’s blood alcohol content was over the legal limit and arrested her for driving under the influence.

Turlock High School students said Gollihar safely drove them to a weekend speech and debate tournament in Stockton and didn’t seem impaired or drunk.

“She seemed fine,” said Alexander Wolsky.

When the students prepared to leave the event, their teacher received word from the CHP that Gollihar had been arrested.

“The speech teacher gathered us all around and said, ‘Hey guys, settle down, I got something to tell you,’” Wolsky said. “Our bus driver just got pulled over for a DUI.”

The Turlock Unified School District issued a statement to CBS13 on the incident.

“The District is currently investigating the situation. Seeing as how this is a personnel issue, we are not commenting on the employee involved. It should be noted that there were no students involved,” the statement read.

District officials did not comment on whether Gollihar is still driving.

    Are any of you aware that by saying these things you’re not only hurting her but her two wonderful daughters. She made ONE mistake, yes it was a big one but it doesn’t take away from who she actually is. She’s my bestfriends mother a women who took me in when I had nowhere to go. So go ahead and look down on her for this mistake you’re not the ones who have to deal with it. You also have no idea what was going on the day of so you really don’t have a place to say anything. You know nothing of her or her life. I hope you’re all happy that you’re hurting her daughters because of your words.

    DUI’s happen to the best of us. But a DUI whilst operating a school bus? Come on, Really??? That is blatant negligence. She has absolutely no respect tor the passengers on the bus, so why should the posters in this forum owe her any form of respect?

    You will also learn how to reverse the acne situation if you have already done those things that should NEVER be done. Acne can be treated and many people, including adults, have to deal with it at some point. You will want to start off using just a little bit at first until you know if it will irritate your skin. Laser therapy is another excellent acne scar removal treatment. Shaving can easily irritate sensitive skin so only shave when it is necessary and only shave in one direction remove acne scars .
    Many of the acne cures on the market have harsh chemicals that can irritate and damage the skin. This is always important but it is especially important when you are using topical or internal acne medication which increases your skin’s photo-sensitivity. Treating acne scars can be done through natural inexpensive ways and dermatological procedures that would probably cost a lot. This is an anti-ageing and anti-wrinkling agent that helps the skin to regenerate.
