After a police officer saw a school bus swerve partially off a road in Connecticut, the vehicle carrying 20 students was stopped and the driver was arrested for driving drunk.

Students told police the bus had hit some curbs. No one was hurt.

The Associated Press reported police in Farmington as saying 44-year-old Tammy Costello, of Bristol, was arrested Wednesday morning.

Authorities say Costello's blood-alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit for commercial drivers.

Costello was released on bail and is to appear Tuesday in Hartford Superior Court.

Costello didn't immediately return a phone message Thursday. It's not clear if she has a lawyer.

M & J Bus Co. said it suspended Costello and all its drivers are subjected to random drug and alcohol testing. School officials notified parents about the incident.
