Rob Ford was suspected of using a variety of drugs, drinking in public and at work, and spending time with prostitutes, by the mayor’s former and current staffers, various media reported, citing court documents containing findings of an official police investigation.
Ford smoked pot, drove while being under the influence, used Oxycontin and was seen with a woman suspected to be a prostitute according to search warrant information released on Wednesday, the CBC reported.
The fresh details were derived from previously redacted sections of documents police used to get a search warrant for Alexander (Sandro) Lisi, Ford's friend and occasional driver, who is now facing drug charges and an extortion charge, the report added.
