Andrew Adams reportingNot only is a bus driver accused of being drunk on the job, you can also call him a quitter.

It wasn't too hard to tell the guy had a few too many. According to the Park Record, Summit County Sheriff's investigators say he was trying to turn a Park City bus around on Old Ranch Road and got it stuck. Rather than trying to do something about it, he simply ditched the rig.

Transit supervisors showed up to find the driver sauntering down the road. A deputy found his blood-alcohol level to be three times the legal limit.

The driver is now on paid leave and faces charges. Luckily, nobody was on the bus. It's a sigh of relief for the driver, too. He could have faced more serious charges if there had been anybody on board.
