Rob Ford’s Cadillac Escalade has been impounded in Bracebridge following a drunk-driving incident that occurred at 2:30 p.m. today near Muskoka Road 169 and Butterfly Road. Only one person was in the vehicle at the time, and it wasn’t the mayor: the sole occupant, reports CP24, was 36-year-old Lee Anne McRobb. McRobb, who lives in the Muskoka region, reportedly met the mayor in rehab, and the two appear to be Facebook friends. She was not charged with stealing the vehicle. Asked by Moose FM how it was she got her hands on the SUV, she said, “That’s for me to know.”

Last Friday, Ford was spotted in Bracebridge, where he took photos with locals. His family cottage is in the area, as is the rehabilitation centre he reportedly checked into.

McRobb is scheduled to appear in court on June 17.
