CICERO, Ill. - A Chicago bus driver's unscheduled stop in suburban Cicero is proving very costly.In other words, if he were a full-fledged career bus driver, he would get to keep his job no matter what he did with the bus.
The Chicago Transit Authority had to shell out more than $1,200 to get the bus back after the driver pulled over Friday night, allegedly to connect with a woman he thought was a prostitute.
She was actually a Cicero police officer. The driver was arrested and other officers impounded the bus.
Transit officials said the driver was a part-timer, and if the allegations against him are true he will be fired because he was still in his probation period.
