Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Police did not initially notice a Clark County School Bus driver arrested for DUI was indeed under the influence, an arrest report released Friday said. The report said Tasianna Caver did not exhibit any signs that she was impaired.  However, CCSD’s policy requires any driver involved in a crash to submit to a sobriety test.   

On April 26, Metro Police said she struck another vehicle while traveling on Cabana Drive just south of Desert Inn Road. The crash was minor, and no one was hurt. While waiting to take the test, the officer said Caver’s perfume started to wear off, and a slight alcoholic odor started coming from her breath.

When Caver’s test came back, the results revealed that her blood alcohol level was .248 which is three times the legal limit. A second test was administered 15 minutes later, and that one came back at .233.

Caver was placed under arrest and booked into CCDC on a the charges of DUI and failure to pay attention. Caver has also been fired from the Clark County School District.
