Former Clearview Township Fire Chief Bob McKean was back in court today to hear his sentence for drunk and dangerous driving after going the wrong way on Highway 407 in June.

McKean declined to speak with us on camera outside a Burlington court after being fined $3,500 and sentenced to 18 months’ probation. McKean will also lose his licence for 18 months and will have to perform 100 hours of community service.

In October, McKean pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and dangerous driving after he was caught travelling east in the westbound lanes of Highway 407 in June with his children in the back of his truck.

Police received numerous calls from drivers saying they had nearly been hit by the speeding vehicle.

No one, including the three children in the back of the truck, was hurt.

In July, Clearview Township relieved McKean of his duties.

In court today, McKean said he is involved in a lawsuit with the town.
