CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A former bus driver Northwest Local Schools bus driver who pled guilty to driving drunk while on the bus was sentenced to six months in jail Wednesday.

61-year-old John Dahlheimer was arrested in October after the school bus he was driving ran into two parked pick up trucks at Princeton High School. He had just dropped off 33 Colerain High School band students and four parents for a football game. Police say his blood-alcohol content was over five times the legal limit for a commercial driver and officers found an open bottle of Jagermeister and prescription pills in the bus.

No students were on the bus at the time of the crash, and Dahlheimer was fired from his job shortly after the incident.
