Arrested Bafana Player Out On Bail...

Arrested Bafana Bafana Player Out On Bail...

By Soccer Laduma - May 14, 2018 11:10 AM

The Bafana Bafana player who was arrested on the weekend for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol has been released on bail, with a provisional court date set. 

News broke in Mzasnsi on Sunday, May 13, that 15 people were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, which included a Bafana Bafana international. While it was reported that the player is a 28-year-old former Orlando Pirates player, his identity has not been made public as yet. 
 
 
Following the news, on Sunday Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) spokesman Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba confirmed the arrest. At the time Mahamba explained that the player had applied for bail, though it had not been granted at that point in time.
 
The spokesman has since confirmed that the football player has been released on bail and will appear in court next year.
 
“He has been released on R1 000 bail and will appear in the Hatfield Court, courtroom number two, on May 15, 2019,” stated  Mahamba.
 
Questioning the time span of the provisional court date, Mahamba explained. “That’s right, it’s 2019. The reason is that their is a process and it must be followed. When an individual is arrested for alleged drinking and driving, a breathalyser test is taken. The individual is then taken for blood tests.
 
“To get the results of the tests takes up to one year, that is the max time. There are reasons for that but I cannot divulge why. But if the tests come back earlier, then he will receive a subpoena to appear in court before May 15, 2019. We now waiting for the evidence.”

Yes it's definitely Andile Jali who was caught at a roadblock in Hatfield by Tshwane Metro police officers.He was driving his personalised Jali 15 GP white Jeep Cherokee SRT in a company of a male friend when he was arrested.He spent Saturday night behind bars at the Brooklyn police station...now I wonder what's holding back SL to tell the story as it is.

@megabite Kermit was playing on Saturday, I doubt he took a flight soon after the match to SA and get drunk in PTA...Its definitely AJ he obviously gave the cops R200 and they allowed him to use his phone.....He tweeted it's not him and he'll apologise next year for driving drunk....Hope we don't sign him, he'll be a bad influence to young stars like Tau and Makgalwa
