WAYNESBORO, GA (AP) - A woman is accused of stealing a school bus from a residence, then ramming a vehicle while driving across an east Georgia county.

Burke County sheriff's officials say the driver of the vehicle that was struck called police and began following it.

Sheriff's officials say the bus eventually crashed on Georgia Highway 56, where deputies found 41-year-old Tammy Lynn Rogers of Hephzibah in the driver's seat of the bus Sunday. Sheriff's officials say she was intoxicated, and driving under the influence is among the charges she faces.

The Augusta Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1KkczKg) that video from the bus showed the suspect damaging items on the dashboard and throwing a drink at the door, shattering it.

It wasn't known whether Rogers has a lawyer. She's also charged with theft, leaving an accident scene and various traffic violations.
