According to officials, the instructor was Corey Malone. The video not only hows Malone making a U-turn, but he slowly backs into the gate. If that wasn’t enough, the gate then hits the school principal in the stomach.
As the footage goes on, viewers can see the principal trying to talk to Maline. However, Malone drives off while the student is in the back of the car.
One student, Abriana Duch, says that she now fears for other people who may take lessons from the company. Her father, David Duch, says that they drop her off and let her go. They’ve never felt the need to check the driver. Police say that the school was able to get in contact with Just Drive, who then was able to contact Malone. They told him to take the student back to the school.
When Malone came back to the school, officers were able to give him a Breathalyzer exam. According to the results, he blew a 0.35, which is over four times the legal limit. Malone was soon in police custody.
The school chose to send a letter out to the parents of the Germantown school explaining the situation and letting them know that no one was hurt during the incident. Also, that Just Drive will no longer have affiliation with any of the district campuses.
