Rob Ford’s Escalade—but not Ford himself—nabbed on drunk-driving charges

Rob Ford’s sojourn in rehab seems to be going reasonably well. The mayor himself has mostly stayed out of the public eye (mostly), but his car, on the other hand, has been behaving like a total jerk. Somehow, Ford’s black Cadillac Escalade—the most recognizable of all vehicles in Toronto, with the possible exception of the Purrari—ended up in the possession of a 36-year-old Muskoka Lakes Township woman named LeeAnne McRobb, who, according to the Star, promptly got the car impounded, with its plates mysteriously removed, after allegedly driving it while intoxicated. McRobb’s relationship with Ford is unknown, but in the video above, shot by a reporter from MooseFM, she seems to imply that she and Ford knew each other in rehab. The mayor is believed to be a patient at the GreeneStone addiction treatment centre, in Muskoka.
