Please, no texting while driving! First of all, it's illegal and it's extremely dangerous. And it's especially dangerous if you're driving a school bus full of school kids.

A Minneapolis, Minnesota school bus driver is accused of texting while driving and looking up jokes on her cellphone.

Thirty nine-year old Brenda Carsten is charged in Anoka County District Court with more than a dozen misdemeanor and gross-misdemeanor charges of child endangerment. Her first court appearance is June 6.

Authorities say the charges stem from video and audio taken on the bus in Blaine on February 6 showing Carsten driving erratically and children moving around the bus while it was on the road.

Carsten allegedly had both hands off the steering wheel and was looking up "your mama" jokes on her phone. At one point, authorities say she handed the cellphone to a student to read the jokes over the bus intercom.
