Rob Ford Admits to Drug Charges
Toronto mayoral candidate Rob Ford admitted in a statement this morning that he pleaded guilty to refusing to give a breath sample while driving in Florida 11 years ago, he also admitted that he faced a marijuana possession charge that was later dropped. “I guess I had a few drinks at [a] Valentine’s dinner with my wife. And it was a mistake. I shouldn’t have been driving,” he said.
In regards to the marijuana charge, Ford said police pulled him over in Miami on Valentines Day in 1999 and he had a joint in his pocket. He was arrested, booked and release and never appeared in court. He was fined, but could not remember how much the fine was.
