SAPS constable has gone viral for fighting with a Taxi Driver – Video


The SAPS constable from Khayelitsha, Cape Town, has gone viral on social media for all the wrong reasons.

A constable is alleged to have been drunk when he allegedly drove his police van into the back of a taxi on Wednesday.

A 33-year-old police constable was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and reckless and negligent driving after being recorded fighting with a taxi driver.

In the video recorded by a passenger, the police officer can be seen walking over to the taxi driver and hitting him.

The taxi driver gets out and walks over to the police officer while a woman dressed in civilian clothes climbs out of the police van and walks over to the pair.

Words are exchanged and then the taxi driver head-butts the officer.

The pair start brawling on the road as traffic flows past. The taxi driver beats up the officer and even spits in his face.

However, in a statement released on Thursday, provincial police spokesperson Brigadier Novela Potelwa confirmed the officer had been charged with driving under the influence and reckless and negligent driving.

She said police management in the province were shocked when they learned of the videos and recordings making the rounds on social media of one of their officials involved in a vehicle accident and a fight with a taxi driver from Khayelitsha.
