Mayoral Meltdown - UPDATED with Video

I don't know about you guys, but I find this video startling. If you haven't been following, or are following,the story, nearly 500 pages of documents from a police investigation of Alexander 'Sandro' Lisi are being released today, and the information reported so far indicates that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford kept pretty close company with Lisi as he was going about his business dealign drugs. This probably came as no surprise to the mayor judging by his reaction to the media encamped in his driveway this morning.
Sadly, there's no embed available (yet), but to break it down, Ford basically lost it with the media on his property, practically chasing them to the base of his driveway as he tried to get in his car. To say he was livid doesn't quite sell it, rather he seemed outright deranged. Now Ford's never had the best of relationships with the media, and even his normally pleasant media relationships have been strained lately, but to see Ford go full out incredible Hulk on the media is telling, and admittedly, a little frightening.
UPDATE - Thurs, 1:30 pm
The police had a press conference were Chief Bill Blair basically confirmed that the police had in their possession the video that allegedly features Rob Ford smoking crack, describing the film as "consistent with a video previously described in the media."
Here's the video from this morning's scrum:
