Toronto's mayor may soon hire his own security detail after a woman allegedly threw a drink at him at a weekend street festival.

Until now, Rob Ford has resisted taking on security guards or his own driver in an attempt to save money.

But following Saturday's alleged incident at Little Italy, Ford told his radio show yesterday that it's time to get his own security personnel.

Meanwhile, the suspect, 27-year-old Shannon Everett, is scheduled to appear in court July 23.
