A bus driver with the Regional Transit Authority was arrested this afternoon for allegedly driving his bus while drunk.
John Farmer, 46, of Avila Beach was arrested at 2:40 p.m. as he drove his bus through San Luis Obispo. The bus was traveling to San Luis Obispo from Santa Maria.
A passenger on the bus called police after noticing the bus was being driven erratically, and said the driver could be drunk, according to a San Luis Obispo police news release.
Police stopped the bus at Palm and Osos streets and arrested Farmer on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. RTA authorities were notified, and another driver took over.
