A New Jersey bus driver has been charged with drunken driving after middle school students told their parents that she was swerving and falling asleep behind the wheel.
  

Westhampton police Sgt. Stephen Ent says Carole Crockett had a blood-alcohol level of 0.25 percent, five times the legal limit for operating a commercial vehicle.
  

Some of the 25 students on the bus called and texted their parents Tuesday afternoon to alert them. One parent showed a text message to NBC Philadelphia that read: “Mommy I think our bus driver is drunk she’s not driving right.”
  

Parents called Westhampton Middle School, which alerted police. Officers say they found Crockett at another school trying to pick up more students.
  

Crockett didn’t return a voice mail message Thursday. She was released on $85,000 bail.
