A young driver was looking for their one-way ticket to TikTok stardom.. instead, all they got was a ticket for impaired driving.
Police say a young driver being investigated for impaired driving offered an Oak Bay police officer a chance to appear on TikTok.
The 20-year-old driver was pulled over just after 10 p.m. Saturday after he failed to stop at a stop sign.
The driver offered the cop to be on TikTok who “reluctantly declined” the offer and continued on with the impaired driving investigation.
In the end, 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.
So when you see a TikTok video of a car being towed away in Oak Bay, you now know why.
