TORONTO - Mayor Rob Ford is still in rehab but his SUV has been impounded for an alleged impaired driving infraction involving a Muskoka Lakes Township, Ont., woman.

Sources confirm to QMI Agency that Lee Anne McRobb, the woman allegedly driving alone and drunk in the mayor's black Cadillac Escalade on Tuesday afternoon, was in rehab treatment at GreeneStone Muskoka with Ford.

McRobb wouldn't tell reporters in Gravenhurst, Ont., Wednesday at Northland Towing and Recovery why she was behind the wheel of the mayor-mobile.

"It doesn't matter. That's for me to know," McRobb said in a video posted by MooseFM's Carly Verhoeven. "You guys don't need to know."

In two videos posted by MooseFM on YouTube, McRobb mentions she was in GreeneStone and left something in Ford's room. She goes on to confirm she left the rehab facility.

"I was but I'm out of there," she said.

At times in the videos, McRobb denies knowing Ford.

"Everybody knows him, he's on the news," McRobb said.

Asked if she cares for Ford, McRobb shrugged.

"I'm not going to comment on this right now, I'm a little emotional," she said.

McRobb could not be reached for comment Wednesday. A number listed for McRobb in Mactier, Ont., was disconnected and a Facebook page with the same name was no longer public Wednesday night.

A press release from the OPP said Bracebridge, Ont., detachment officers made the stop around 2:34 p.m. after responding to a traffic complaint.
