TORONTO — Toronto police released court documents Wednesday that include a description of a video where Mayor Rob Ford is seen smoking what appears to be crack cocaine.

Ford, who is seeking re-election despite the drug scandal engulfing him, acknowledged last year that he smoked crack in a "drunken stupor" after police said they obtained the video. News reports of the crack video's existence first surfaced in May, but it has not been released publicly.

"Mayor Ford is holding what appears to be a glass cylinder in one hand and a lighter in the other hand while engaged in conversation with individual[s] off camera," the documents state.

"At one point Mayor Ford holds the glass cylinder to his mouth. Lights the lighter and applies the flame to the tip of the glass cylinder in a circular motion. After several seconds Mayor Ford appears to inhale."

The video appears to have been filmed surreptitiously showing Ford "consuming what appears to be a narcotic while inside a residence," according to the documents.
