Johannesburg - A policeman has been arrested for drunken driving in Willowmore, in the Eastern Cape, police said on Thursday.

Police saw him driving recklessly on Wednesday night, said Captain Ernest Sigobe. They followed him and pulled him over.

"They realised he was driving under the influence of alcohol and took him to the police station," Sigobe said.

The 48-year-old policeman, who was driving his own car, was expected to face a drunken driving charge in the Willowmore Magistrate's Court on Friday.
