PHILADELPHIA -- A New Jersey bus driver has been charged with drunken driving after a middle school student texted home with "Mommy I think our bus driver is drunk she's not driving right."

Westampton police Sgt. Stephen Ent says Carole Crockett had a blood-alcohol level of 0.25 percent, five times the legal limit for operating a commercial vehicle.

Parents called Westampton Middle School, which alerted police. Officers say they found Crockett at another school trying to pick up more students.

The 46-year-old Crockett didn't return a voice mail message Thursday. She was released on $85,000 bail.
