PENETANGUISHENE, Ont. – An Ontario school bus driver has been charged with allegedly driving with an open container of liquor.

Provincial police say they were alerted by numerous people Wednesday about a school bus driver in Tiny Township who may have been allegedly drinking while driving.

Officers stopped the bus on a road west of Penetanguishene and had the driver take a roadside screening test.

Police say Michael Binseer, a 59-year-old Tiny Township resident, subsequently lost his driving privileges for three days and was given a $198 penalty on top of the driving with an open container of liquor charge.

There were no students on the bus when it was stopped.
