On Friday, Longview Public Schools said in a statement that Maccarone remains on administrative leave pending completion of an internal investigation.

The district said the "incident that occurred is not indicative of the great work Longview Public School drivers do every day."

Maccarone's arrest prompted the district to put in place an improved process for screening drivers prior to their driving their routes each day, the statement said. Additionally, a state Department of Education transportation representative is reviewing the district's procedures.

The child who called 911 about Maccarone first discussed her behavior with his mother. The boy told the 911 dispatcher that his mother does not speak English well and told him to call the emergency number.

The boy said on the call that Maccarone was not acting as she normally did. Usually she was strict about student behavior but on that day she was giving children more leeway.

"Her eyes, you could tell she was drunk," he said in the call. "Her breath sort of smelled like alcohol."
