Indiana bus driver admits to driving drunk

A former New Albany-Floyd County school bus driver admits she was drunk when she drove a group of cheerleaders home after a football game in 2006.

The cheer coach said 63-year-old Sylvia Cooke was swerving and stopped at a green light, so he asked her to pull over and he called police.  State police say Cooke had a blood-alcohol content of .19, more than twice the legal limit in Indiana.

Cooke will be sentenced in August.  She faces up to three years behind bars.
