Really, the St. Louis Billikens had a crappy, crappy night after getting beat by St. Bonaventure 70-55 on the Bonnies home court in Olean, New York, the team found themselves stranded at the arena with no way home. The bus driver, identified as 56-year-old Linda Edmister of Gasport, Niagara County, was pulled over about 90 minutes after the game 40 miles away in Randolph. O'Callaghan said law enforcement officers are grateful because they know the outcome could have been much different, considering Edmister's level of intoxication. According to a tweet from the St. Louis team, it was the Global Positioning System on a player's iPhone that led the authorities to the bus. Police say Edmister's blood alcohol content was 0.22 percent when she was arrested. The state troopers are tracking her down! Tucked into a remote corner of southwestern NY, it's about a 90-minute drive to the nearest major airport in Buffalo or a 40-minute drive to a regional airport in Bradford, Pa., that can handle charter flights.

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) Missouri has two new members to its public safety team.

Another bus took the Billikens to Randolph so the team could retrieve their possessions from the first bus.
