Cops clip Audi's wings
Johannesburg - Fifteen people were arrested for speeding and drunk driving over the weekend, Johannesburg metro police said on Sunday.
Spokesperson Wayne Minnaar said 12 people were arrested for speeding on Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
"The highest speed was a silver Audi Q7 on the N3 south near Alexandra late on [Saturday night] at 208km/h."
He said a professional soccer player was also caught speeding in his BMW one series at 189km/h at 02:00.
A drunken driver collided head-on into a metro police car on the N1 at the Buccleuch interchange.
"Luckily the officers were not seriously injured."
Metro police officers also arrested two suspected hijackers on the corner of Vasco Da Gama Street and FourthAvenue near Alexandra.
Police received a tip-off and arrested the two men and found them in possession of an unlicensed firearm and 14 9mm rounds.
"All the suspects will appear in various courts this coming week," Minnaar said.
