Police also said Koth’s DUI was not alcohol related, but they wouldn’t specify what he was under the influence of just that they’re waiting for test results.

Koth says he’s been getting a lot of support from family and friends, and is currently suspended from Akita Enterprises, which is contracted to provide bus service for students.
