“I didn’t know it was marijuana,” Chen said. His supervisor, Victor Chen, said the driver has a decade of experience and an exemplary record. He claims the man doesn’t drink or smoke, and that there’s no way the gummy incident was anything other than a mistake. Chen notes that as recently as a few years ago, this would never have been an issue, but now “there’s marijuana everywhere here.”
Connecticut State Police arrived on the scene on I-95 in the Stanton area after a call came in about a motor coach on the side of the road. They found Chen slumped over and unconscious in the driver’s seat. The 38 passengers were reportedly terrified and had no intention of getting on another one of the company’s buses, opting instead to use rideshare services to get home.
Chen was taken to a hospital in Bridgeport, where tests showed large amounts of THC in his blood. Police arrested him at his home on June 13.
