OTTAWA — A supper on the run could cost an Ottawa man $490 after he was caught eating rotisserie chicken out of a white China bowl Tuesday evening while using his knees to steer his vehicle as he sped down the Queensway.
Late for a meeting, the man sped eastbound, passing an unmarked Ontario Provincial Police car on the right around 6 p.m.
Police said the man’s vehicle swerved out of his lane a few times; he followed another vehicle too closely and made a lane change without signalling.
Michael Gibson, 58, was charged with careless driving, for which the fine is $490.
