Mayor Rob Ford says he has been ticketed in the Vancouver area for jaywalking.
Ford tells Toronto Sun columnist and Newstalk 1010 host Joe Warmington that he was crossing the street near his hotel in Coquitlam Friday night when he was approached by an officer who told him he was jaywalking, crossing against a red light.
Ford says he and former staffer David Price were ticketed $109. Ford is in Vancouver this weekend to attend a memorial service for Price's mother.
The mayor says he was speechless and embarassed because people were taking photos.
Ford denied reports that he was also given a citation for public intoxication.
"All I have had here is a diet coke," he tells Warmington.
There are reports that the mayor visited the Foggy Dew Irish pub in the area in the evening hours. Several pictures have been posted to social media.
Ford's spokesperson has not returned our request for a comment.
