Licence suspended, driver ticketed after asking cop to be on TikTok

TikTok no, busted yes

A driver who offered an Oak Bay police officer a chance to appear on TikTok ended up being investigated for impaired driving.

The 20-year-old man made the suggestion about 10 p.m. Feb. 20 after he was pulled over for failing to stop at a stop sign in the Victoria suburb.

The offer to be on TikTok, an online social networking service for sharing videos, was turned down by the officer.

Instead, the driver’s vehicle was towed, his licence was suspended for 24 hours, and he received a $230 ticket for operating a motor vehicle with cannabis in it.

He was also issued a $167 ticket for not stopping at the stop sign.
