KUSA - 9Wants to Know has discovered the Adams12 bus driver arrested for driving the bus while intoxicated - was forced out of nursing in Colorado over substance abuse issues.
Burt Carpenter was fired from the Broomfield Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in April of last year.
An investigation revealed he'd been taking out medications in patients' names and never giving them the drugs.
He admitted to have a drug problem.
Within three months, he was hired by the Adams 12 school district, long before the disciplinary action against him showed up in the state's public database.
Carpenter gave up his nursing license.
