Rob Ford Ticketed For Jaywalking

Feb 02, 2014

It appears no infraction, no matter how small, is beneath the freewheeling mayor of Toronto Rob Ford.

Ford was ticketed for jaywalking within hours of arriving in British Columbia, Canada for a weekend visit Friday night, reports the Toronto Star. A flurry of posts on social media showed Ford dancing and posing for pictures with fellow revelers the same night police stopped him while crossing a road linking the towns of Burnaby and Coquitlam, not far from Vancouver. A spokesman for the mayor declined to comment on whether he'd been drinking.

Ford, who admitted to smoking crack cocaine after months of denials, is running for re-election in Toronto.
