Yellowstone National Park (ID,MT,WY)
Two Bus Drivers Arrested On Suspicion Of DUI

Two bus drivers taken into custody Friday afternoon on suspicion of drunk driving made their initial court appearances on Monday. Jack Parrent, Jr., 44, and Kevin Leon Stark, 42, both of Bozeman, Montana, appeared before a magistrate judge in the Yellowstone Justice Center in Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyoming. Acting on a phone tip, park rangers contacted the pair Friday at the Specimen Ridge trailhead in the Lamar Valley east of Tower Junction, where the two buses the men were driving were parked. Both were employed by Karst Stage of Bozeman, Montana. The firm had been hired by Bozeman Public Schools to provide transportation for a field trip by a group of middle school students. When taken into custody, Parrent had a blood alcohol content of 0.091, Stark a blood alcohol content of 0.032. Parrent and Stark each face three misdemeanor charges. Neither entered a plea during their federal court appearance Monday. Both men were released on signature bonds. [Submitted by Public Affairs Office]
