(AP) Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is denying allegations in newly released court documents that he offered $5,000 and a car to suspected drug dealers in exchange for a video that appears to show him smoking crack.


Ford calls the allegations an "outright lie." The mayor addressed the issue during an appearance Thursday on a Washington-based sports talk show on WJFK-FM to make NFL picks.


The court documents detail police wiretaps of alleged gang members who spoke about delivering drugs to Ford and having pictures of him using drugs. One suspect is heard telling another that he rejected the offer for the video and planned to meet the mayor and ask for "150," meaning $150,000.


Ford acknowledged last month that he has smoked crack but refused to resign amid immense pressure.
