Toronto’s mayor Rob Ford is at it again. The infamous admitted crack-smoker was busted in Vancouver Friday night — for jaywalking!
“He said, ‘I f’d up boys. I was just trying to cross the red light here, and this officer stopped me,’” Ian Currie, who saw Ford being ticketed by officers, told Canada’s Global News .
“He said ‘I thought it was looser on the West Coast, I thought you were cooler over here,’” Currie added. “We said, ‘it’s still the RCMP [Royal Canadian Mounted Police], man.’”
Ford and former aide David Price were each ticketed $109 for disobeying a pedestrian sign, according to the Toronto Sun. He told a reporter for the paper he was “shocked” and “embarrassed” and called the incident a waste of taxpayers’ money.
The incident comes just days after Rob was accused in a civil lawsuit of conspiring to arrange for the beating of his sister’s ex-boyfriend, who is in prison, and another episode of public intoxication, this time in a fast food restaurant.
