(CBS/AP) TORONTO - Toronto's police chief says authorities have recovered an alleged drug video involving Mayor Rob Ford.

Ford faced allegations in May that he had been caught on video puffing from a glass crack pipe. Two reporters with the Toronto Star said they saw the video, but it has not been released publicly. 

The Associated Press has not seen the video. Ford maintains he does not smoke crack and that the video does not exist.

Police Chief Bill Blair said Thursday he was "disappointed" after viewing the video, but that there was nothing in the video that would provide grounds to press charges.

Blair says the video will come out in court and declined to provide details.

He said the video, recovered from a computer hard drive, "depicts images that are consistent with those previously reported in the press."
