The driver of a MegaBus transporting people from Chicago to Iowa City and Des Moines has been arrested for drunken driving, according to the Press-Citizen.

A complaint from the State Patrol said Carl Smiley, 52, of Chicago, was charged Oct. 21 with second-offense OWI.

The complaint said a state trooper observed a bus traveling west on Interstate 80 and allegedly failing to maintain a lane, prompting a traffic stop.

Upon contact with the trooper, Smiley allegedly smelled strongly of alcohol and admitted he had been drinking.

The report said Smiley failed field sobriety testing and was placed under arrest for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
