St. Louis Basketball Team Unable To Locate Bus Or (Drunk) Driver After Loss


We’ve all heard fans chant “Warm up the bus” to visiting teams about to lose. Of course, in order to heed that advice, the team actually needs a bus.

Following its 70-55 loss to St. Bonaventure on Wednesday, the Saint Louis University men’s basketball team was unable to locate either its bus driver or its bus. That’s because the driver, 56-year-old Linda Edmister, was arrested for driving while intoxicated after driving the Billikens’ bus 40 miles away to Randolph, N.Y., ESPN reports.

Edmister and the missing bus were located with the help of GPS-equipped devices that were left on the bus, according to New York State Police Trooper James O’Callaghan. Considering Edmister registered a 0.22 blood-alcohol content, more than five times above the 0.04 legal limit for New York drivers with commercial licenses, the incident could’ve been much worse.

“With a vehicle that large and her intoxication level, we’re actually lucky nothing (worse) happened,” O’Callaghan told ESPN.

The Billikens were able to retrieve all of their items from the original bus before boarding a new bus with a new driver.
