“Mayor Ford’s speech was slurred and he appeared to be intoxicated with what? (This is unknown),” the documents state. “Face a little bit red and pupil slightly dilated.”

“I know you have a job to do, but you can’t do that to me man,” the mayor said according to the document. “You just don’t do that [to] Mayor Ford.”

During the 2012 incident, the mayor was allegedly intoxicated, “sweating profusely” and “had problems walking” when he showed up to city hall at 3:52 a.m. on March 18 after he was out celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.

“What you didn’t think I would find out?!” the documents allege the mayor said. “I’m going to get him you mark my words.”

The mayor never said explicitly who he was talking about but the report alleges it was the security guard who wrote the report detailing the mayor’s drunken parade around city hall two years prior.

The mayor allegedly continued talking with the security guards and complimented one on “how big” his arms were getting.  The mayor then said he was going to “meet Justin Bieber at Much Music.”

He was later filmed outside of city hall wearing green beads and swearing loudly before getting into a taxi. 

According to city of Toronto officials, city manager Joe Pennachetti met with the mayor on March 21 and asked him to apologize to the security guards involved in the meeting.

The mayor refused, saying he hadn’t seen the report. He was later provided a copy of the report and city officials are unaware if the mayor had apologized.
