TORONTO - Security video showing Mayor Rob Ford's antics on two late nights at City Hall was finally released on Friday.

QMI Agency and several other media outlets asked more than one month ago for the footage of Ford at City Hall from last March 15 and April 5 -- both Saturdays.

On the night of March 15, Ford was filmed in front of City Hall looking dishevelled, stumbling, shouting and swearing while handing out green beads for St. Patrick's Day.

The footage shows Ford arriving at City Hall with the green beads and later being trapped in the front lobby when he can't work the doors to leave the building. A security guard had to help him open them so he could get out.

A city security report released earlier this month detailed how Ford "appeared to be intoxicated" that night and allegedly told security guards that he was going to "get" one of their former colleagues for filing a report about a 2012 St. Patrick's Day party in the mayor's office.

There is no footage of Ford's exchange with security guards at the building's security desk. A city spokesman has said there was no security camera that focuses on the security desk.
