Police say a woman was arrested for drunk driving while driving Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's black Cadillac Escalade.

36-year-old LeeAnne McRobb was arrested in Ontario's Muskoka region and charged with impaired driving and driving over the legal limit. She was driving Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's SUV, which was impounded for seven days, according to the Toronto Sun. McRobb claimed to have met Ford while the two were in rehab together for substance abuse and said that she had permission to borrow the mayor's vehicle. The nature of McRobb's relationship with Ford is unknown.

Ford is reportedly still in rehab, where he has been since he took a leave of absence on April 30 to get help for his substance abuse problem.
