Well... imagine my relief

It turns out he wasn't drinking after all...

The medical history of a former school bus driver charged with impaired driving was laid out in detail in court yesterday, as the defence tried to explain Jerry McNeill's erratic behaviour.

McNeill's psychiatrist, Dr. Leslie Kiraly, took the stand in a College Park court, and said his patient suffered from bipolar disorder, evident through bouts of depression, mild mood swings, and "hypomanic" episodes..
So why is this case even on anybody's radar?
He was pulled over by police after he picked up nearly 40 children from a water park in Toronto's east end and drove them down the Don Valley Parkway.
Good grief.
