Dash cam video of the driver, posted on YouTube, shows the driver of a white van appearing to intentionally drive into big puddles to soak people on the sidewalk.

On Sunday, the van company, Black & McDonald, issued an apology on its Facebook page about the driver's "unacceptable" behavior.

According to CBC, police have closed the case and no criminal charges will be filed.
