Impaired Ontario Driver Shows Photo Of Rapper Instead Of Licence

A 33-year-old woman was charged for driving impaired with a 5-year old girl in the backseat on June 24, says police.

According to a York Regional Police press release, an officer patrolling in Vaughan spotted the driver "driving erratically and failing to stop at a stop sign, leading him to believe the driver may be impaired."

In fact, in a video, the officer states that the driver was caught going through two stop signs and throwing litter out of the car.

The woman was stopped around Clarence Street and Wycliffe Avenue at approximately 6:45 p.m., and in the video, the officer said he could smell alcohol at the car's window.

Once pulled over, the driver was asked for their licence. Instead, the woman showed the officer a photo of rapper J. Cole. "I asked you for your driver's licence and you're showing me a picture of J. Cole," stated the officer.

No one was injured during the incident. The woman was arrested and charged with impaired operation, 80 plus and driving while under suspension.
