MOUNT STERLING, Ky. (AP) — A Montgomery County Public Schools bus driver has been suspended from his job after being arrested for drunken driving at a school.

WKYT-TV reports (http://bit.ly/23NTzU6) Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 59-year-old Brian Fletcher on Wednesday at Camargo Elementary School.

According to a citation, Fletcher’s breath alcohol content was 0.068 percent. For commercial vehicle operators in Kentucky, anything above 0.04 percent results in criminal charges.

Superintendent Matt Thompson says in a statement that the district is “working with local law enforcement” and following its “personnel guidelines, policies, procedures and state and federal laws.”

On Thursday afternoon, Fletcher was released from the Montgomery County Regional Jail on bond.
