The embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is making the news in his country of Canada and elsewhere, especially in the U.S. where he's been the butt of TV show sketches and talk show jokes. Now even a small-town U.S.A. cop has made a Ford reference.
In Hampton, Florida, the mayor, Barry Layne Moore, was arrested this week on charges of selling the drug Oxycodone (note the charges against Mr. Moore have not been proven in a court of law). It appears the local Bradford County sheriff has heard of Mayor Ford and his drug escapades (crack cocaine, marijuana, you've likely heard).
“This isn’t Toronto." Sheriff Gordon Smith told local media after making the arrest. "We will not tolerate illegal drug activity, in my jurisdiction, by anyone to include our elected officials.”
Hampton, Fla., it must be noted, has a population of just 500.
