Councillor Ana Bailão Pleads Guilty to Drunk Driving

At a press conference this afternoon, Councillor Ana Bailão (Ward 18, Davenport) said that she has pleaded guilty to drunk driving charges brought against her in October, when she was pulled over by police while driving home from a night out at the Thompson Hotel. She had been drinking in the company of some City Hall types. Among them, Bailão told reporters today, were lobbyists involved in casino negotiations with the City. Initially, she said she’d plead not guilty.

The Star reports that Bailão’s admission, today, was a tearful one, and that her driver’s license has been suspended for a year. She has also been fined $1,000.

Her blood alcohol level was reportedly 0.13, whereas the legal limit is 0.08.
