In the news: Faces charges of drunken driving and defeating the ends of justice

Robert McBride, the Chief of the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Police, faced charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, defeating the ends of justice and fraud.

The charges relate to McBride's car accident in December 2006, near Centurion, Pretoria.

The story took a weird turn when it emerged in September that Gauteng police were investigating media reports that three metro police officers, who had turned state witness against McBride, were themselves being investigated for cash-in-transit robberies.
