GERMANTOWN, Wis. (WITI) -- Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles officials announced Thursday the suspension of the license for Milwaukee-area driving school Just Drive Germantown after an unlicensed instructor was found performing behind-the-wheel instruction while impaired in January.
FOX6 News in January reported Corey Malone was cited for being intoxicated behind the wheel. The incident happened on Jan. 6 and was caught on camera.
The driver's ed instructor was performing a backing maneuver in the parking lot at Germantown High School when he struck the metal swinging gate, which hit the principal. Police said the principal interacted with Malone and believed him to be impaired.
Police said he left the school property with a student in the vehicle. Police tracked him to his office, where authorities said he admitted he went out drinking the night before.
Germantown police said Malone failed field sobriety testing and was “approximately three times the legal limit.”
According to police, the student driver reported he noticed Malone “was somewhat off,” and roughly 30 minutes into the lesson, they had to turn around.
The DMV has ruled Just Drive Germantown will not be able to perform driver training classroom and behind the wheel instruction from April 1 through June 1, 2020 during the license suspension.
