CKTB - NEWS - Flute traffic stop

Police in Burlington are reporting a bizarre distracted driving incident involving a would-be flautist.

Halton Regional Police tweeted about a strange traffic stop yesterday as an officer was conducting distracted driver enforcement.

The officer expected to see a cell phone clutched in the driver's hand, but instead officials say they were surprised to find the driver was playing a flute with both hands, following along to an Ipod, while still driving.

The driver has been charged and the police have put out a warning that "flutes and driving don't mix."
