According to the Toronto Star, police were called to Ford’s Etobicoke home on early Christmas morning. Apparently, Ford’s mother-in-law was the one who called. She wanted to report that the mayor was drunk and was taking his children to Florida against the wishes of his wife, Renata.
The Toronto police Youth and Family Violence Unit, which takes care of all reported domestic disputes, including incidents that are completely verbal, is still investigating both events.
No charges have been laid.
Two months ago, Rob Ford reportedly called 911 to seek help when the TV crew of ‘This Hour Has 22 Minutes’ tried to play a practical joke on him. According to CBC News, Ford verbally abused 911 dispatchers. However, he later apologized for using the F-word.
Back in 2008, Ford called 911 after a conflict with Renata. He said she was being foolish.
Ford was later charged with assault, uttering a death threat. Both charges were dropped two months later due to inconsistencies in Renata’s story.
At the time, Ford said the couple had begun counseling and that he supports his wife and she him.
