Bus driver accused of driving drunk while transporting pupil
Police arrested a school van driver after he drove drunk while bringing a 16-year-old student home from Perkins School for the Blind Wednesday, said Clinton police Chief Mark Laverdure. Michael Tantillo, a 41-year-old school van driver, was supposed to pick up the blind student from the school in Watertown and bring him to his home in Clinton, Laverdure said. The boy’s parents called police when their son did not return home at the usual time. Clinton police called Tantillo multiple times but he either hung up or ignored the calls, Laverdure said.
