Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s occasional driver Alexander Lisi is seeking $1 million in damages related to a collision in 2010, according to a report by the Toronto Sun.
The newspaper says that court documents it obtained shows that Lisa is claiming that he suffered physical ailments such as pain disorder and a limited range of motion in his arms and spine since the two-vehicle collision.
Lisi was recently released on bail after police allege he threatened two alleged gang members as he tried to get his hands on a video appearing to show Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine.
The 35-year-old was charged with extortion for alleged attempts to get the recording.
Lisi was already out on bail after being arrested and charged last month with four drug offences, including trafficking marijuana.
The Sun says Lisi claims that due to the collision he sustained a substantial loss of income, loss of amenities as well as an inability to participate in social or recreational activities.
The two women involved in the suit reportedly claim Lisi’s injuries are exaggerated.
