Woman busted for drunk driving in Mayor Rob Ford’s Escalade: report
Question of the Day
A Canadian woman enrolled at the same rehab facility as Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was reportedly charged Tuesday afternoon after she was caught driving the mayor’s black Cadillac Escalade while intoxicated.
The Toronto Sun reports that Lee Anne McRobb, 36, was in rehab treatment at GreeneStone Muskoka with Mr. Ford. The mayor is still in rehab, his attorney says, but his SUV was impounded more than 40 miles away in Gravenhurst.
The woman was charged with impaired driving and is scheduled to appear in court in Bracebridge on June 17, the Sun reported.
Mr. Ford has been on a leave of absence since April and in rehab for his admitted alcoholism. He was spotted Friday with his Escalade in Muskoka, dropping off a suit for dry cleaning, the Sun reported.
Mr. Ford’s lawyer Dennis Morris was relieved to hear that the mayor wasn’t involved in the drunken driving incident.
“I have not spoken to him, he’s in rehab as far as I’m concerned,” he told the paper. “There is no allegation [Mr. Ford] was behind the wheel — that’s good news.”
