The Erie County District Attorney’s Office says 55-year-old Brian Ceroky of Lockport faces up to seven years in state prison after pleading guilty on Tuesday.

They say his blood alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit for driving last month while he was driving a shuttle bus for Buffalo State College. After passengers complained, authorities say university police found Ceroky asleep at the wheel of the running bus.
