Rob Ford got into an altercation with reporters and photographers Thursday morning outside his home as bombshell documents were released that say the alleged video showing Toronto's mayor smoking what appears to be crack cocaine has been the focus of a police investigation.
Ford refused to speak with reporters. The mayor, who by all reports seemed extremely tense, told photographers to get off his driveway before physically shoving some of them. You can see photos of the altercation below.

I've never seen the mayor that agitated before. I'm a relative newbie at city hall, but sounds like a first for him. #TOpoli— Kaleigh Rogers (@KaleighRogers) October 31, 2013
Photos from the police documents have also been released. One notable set of photographs shows Ford meeting with Alexander Lisi, a friend and occasional driver for the mayor, in a parking lot. Lisi was arrested earlier in October for marijuana trafficking, possession of the proceeds of crime, possession of marijuana and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.

The documents released Thursday morning contain much of the evidence police collected in order to get a search warrant for Lisi.
Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair is holding a news conference Thursday morning on the investigation detailed in the documents.
