McDuffie County, GA -

A lot of questions about a local school bus driver accused of driving a school bus under the influence.

The Georgia State Patrol incident report explains a McDuffie County Sheriff's Office pulled over Glascock County School bus driver Angela Coxwell on the morning of November 1st, after reports of the bus weaving in traffic.

The report claims the deputy pulled the bus over while exiting Dearing Elementary School. Coxwell told the deputy she had taken the prescription medications Celebrex and Nuvigil in the days before her arrest.

The report also states, Coxwell failed a field sobriety test and was taken into custody. 

It is not clear at this time why Coxwell was in McDuffie County, but the Glascock County Superintendent said she was on duty when she was arrested.

The Superintendent also says there were no children on the bus at the time of the arrest.

Coxwell is currently on leave from Glascock County Schools pending results of blood and urine tests.
