Getting a driver’s license suspension can certainly be a drag, but it can be even more damaging if you’re a professional tour bus driver.
Leon Maynard, a San Francisco tour guide and bus driver, will have to lose his commercial license for a year due to a DUI.
Maynard was arrested this past July when police officers noticed Maynard having trouble holding a microphone and operating the steering wheel of the bus. When the officers approached the double-decker tour bus, they noticed a couple of small bottles of brandy. Maynard’s BAC was .21 percent.
In addition to a license suspension, Maynard will also have to face 3 years probation, as well as 6 days of community service and 6 months of alcohol education classes.
It is important to understand that you, too, could lose your professional license if you are convicted of a DUI. Nurses, doctors and teachers all are at risk of losing their professional license as a result of a DUI conviction. That is why it is important to avoid a conviction at all costs. If you’ve been arrested for a DUI and are worried about your job, contact a lawyer right away.
