TORONTO (AP) — A newly-released security report says Toronto Mayor Rob Ford "appeared intoxicated" and invited an unidentified woman into his office for an hour when City Hall was closed for a public holiday, just days before he entered rehab.

The report, released Friday after a freedom of information request, says Ford was "slurring his words, red in the face, and sweating profusely" when he asked a security guard to "bring her up" just before 8 p.m. on April 21, Easter Monday. The woman left after an hour.

Ford remains in rehab for alcohol addiction after announcing in April that he was seeking treatment after another video surfaced that apparently showed him smoking crack.

Ford admitted last year after reports of a similar video that he had smoked crack in a "drunken stupor."
