A Cape Town police officer in a police BMW was arrested on Sunday for allegedly driving under the influence following a high-speed chase with traffic police, the City's mayoral committee member for safety, JP Smith, said on Monday.
This over a weekend that saw numerous people being arrested for driving under the influence during matric "valedictory" celebrations.
"One of those arrested was a police officer who took officers attached to the Ghost Squad on a wild chase through Khayelitsha into Eerste River at approximately 05:20 on Sunday," said Smith.
The squad comprises unmarked vehicles and officers in civilian clothes.
The officers were on their way to an operation in Kraaifontein when they spotted a white BMW swerving across Spine Road.
"They gave chase but as the officers tried to approach the driver at a red traffic light, he sped off again, resulting in a high-speed chase that nearly resulted in him colliding with oncoming vehicles," said Smith.
