Wild Prom Ride

Promgoers turn in limo driver suspected of drunk driving 

Some high schoolers who rented a limo so they could stay safe on prom night ended up getting a wild ride they didn't plan for.

A senior at Winter Springs High School in Florida used his cell phone to call his dad from the limo, to complain about the driver's erratic driving. He says she blew through stop signs, cut off vehicles and veered onto the wrong side of the road. The man told his son to tell the driver to pull over. When she stopped, the kids grabbed the keys out of the ignition. The students got to the prom an hour and a half late.

Authorities say they found a half-empty vodka bottle next to the driver's seat. They say the driver told them she'd been drinking wine. She's been charged with DUI and refusing to submit to a blood-alcohol test.
