A Texas bus driver is reportedly out of a job after a video allegedly caught him lighting a glass pipe while driving.
AGE, a nonprofit agency serving the elderly, reportedly fired the unnamed employee after the video surfaced on Facebook. The video, which can be viewed below, was shot Tuesday in Round Rock and apparently shows a bus driver holding a glass pipe.
“The video allegedly shows one of our employees behaving illegally while driving alone,” Robert Faubion, a marketing and communications director for AGE of Central Texas Adult Day Care, told the American-Statesman.
While Faubion said the driver “did not admit to or deny any wrongdoing” during a conversation with a supervisor, he said it became apparent there was “due cause” to fire him as the video also caught him speeding.
Some reports indicate that the driver was lighting up a crack pipe, though Pedro King, who recorded the incident, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he’s positive the driver was smoking meth at the time.
“It was meth. No doubt,” King said. “He actually took two good hits, but I only caught the second attempted hit.”
In the video, the bus driver is also seen speeding off once he realizes he’s being watched.
King reportedly called police before he posted the incriminating video on Facebook, where it was viewed more than 466,000 times as of Thursday afternoon.
Spokesman Nick Olivier confirmed to the American-Statesman that they are investigating the incident. Reports indicated that the driver hasn’t been charged.
