  TOWN OF WATERFORD, Wis. (AP) -- A school bus driver in southeastern Wisconsin has been arrested on suspicion of OWI after driving the bus into a cornfield.
   The Racine County Communications Center got a 911 call Tuesday afternoon that the bus had driven into the field and then back onto the road in the Town of Waterford.
   Deputies learned the driver was still on his route and that children were on the bus. The bus was located on a highway in the Town of Burlington with corn stalks hanging from its undercarriage.
   The driver was ordered to pull over. Two children were still on the bus. They and two other children who were on the bus during the accident were not hurt.
   The 38-year-old driver was cited for OWI, hit-and-run, failure to report an accident and unsafe lane deviation.
