2010-08-01 12:39

Johannesburg - Central Karoo Municipality manager Truman Prince was arrested in Laingsburg on a charge of drunk driving, Western Cape Police said on Sunday.

He was arrested after bystanders noticed he was allegedly driving recklessly on Saturday afternoon and phoned the police, Inspector Lindikhaya Mkhontwana said.

He was with his girlfriend at the time. Prince was granted R2 000 bail.

Police were still waiting for a laboratory report confirming Prince's blood alcohol level. Mkhontwana said this could take eight to nine months.

He would then appear in Laingsburg Magistrate's Court.

Prince, was dismissed by the municipality in 2005 on charges of sexual misconduct, arising from a television expos of him flirting with teenage girls. He appealed against his dismissal and was reinstated as municipality manager in June 2007.

He was dismissed from the job two months later. Prince was given the right to appeal and got his post back.
