TORONTO - GO Transit has closed its investigation into Toronto Mayor Rob Ford staffer David Price over allegations he lashed out at transit workers and broke train station property.
Price, Ford's director of logistics and operations, was being investigated by GO Transit safety officers for several incidents at the Georgetown GO Station including an Aug. 27 alleged angry run-in with a station attendant that left a door damaged.
Metrolinx spokesman Anne Marie Aikins confirmed the investigation has wrapped up.
"We have determined that we don't have jurisdiction to lay a charge," Aikins said.
"However the safety and security of our customers and our staff is really important so we have cautioned the individual about his behaviour. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation."
In September, Marc Surette, who owns the Trackside Cafe in the station, told QMI Agency Price missed a train on Aug. 27 and told the attendant to "f--- off" before slamming one of the station's wooden doors open, causing it to hit an outside ledge and crack.
When Surette confronted Price about his behaviour, the Ford staffer replied: "Yeah, f--- you d---head, what are you going to do about it?"
Price has yet to comment.
