A San Francisco tour bus operator will lose his commercial driver's license for a year after pleading no contest Monday to a DUI charge, according to prosecutors.
Leon Maynard, 60, of San Bruno, struck a plea bargain with prosecutors stemming from the July 5 incident that also includes three years of probation, six days of service with the sheriff's work alternative program, and six months in a DUI offender's program.
On the day of the incident, Maynard was reportedly driving a double-decker tour bus for San Francisco Deluxe Sightseeing when he was stopped by police near Stockton and Post streets about 1:15 p.m.
Officers said they saw him "struggling to steer the bus while holding the microphone."
When police approached the coach, they allegedly spotted three bottles of E&J Brandy on the windowsill of the bus, including two that were travel-size and a third bottle that was slightly bigger.
Maynard's blood alcohol content registered 0.21, prosecutors said. The state's legal limit is .08.
