An attorney entered a not guilty plea for a Vermont man accused of driving a bus to a school while under the influence of alcohol.
The Valley News reports Brett Jenkinson, of Northfield, appeared in court Tuesday.
Police say Jenkinson was scheduled to drive a bus of Whitcomb Junior-Senior High School students to Boston for a field trip on Oct. 8. The principal called state police after a paraprofessional reported smelling alcohol on his breath.
Court documents show he had a blood alcohol content between .09 and .10. The legal limit for a school bus driver is .02.
The newspaper's attempts to reach him on Tuesday were unsuccessful.
Jenkinson is due back in White River Junction courthouse on Jan. 6.
