D.C.'s public school system has fired a school bus driver charged with driving under the influence.
D.C. schools officials say 55-year-old Fritz Gerald Aubin was fired after he left his bus in the middle of a street on Capitol Hill with three children and an aide still aboard. It happened earlier this month.
Aubin is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and operating a vehicle while impaired. He had been an employee of the Office of the State Superintendent of Education, which operates school buses in the District for students with disabilities.
A spokeswoman says Aubin was fired for "multiple violations," after an investigation. He was released pending a hearing in January.
Both Aubin and his attorney declined comment.
