Cape Town - A Cape Town policeman accused of driving drunk will appear in court only in February after the matter was left off the court roll, according to a report on Tuesday.

The Cape Argus reported that the cluster commander should have appeared in the Khayelitsha Magistrate's Court on Monday.

He was arrested when he crashed into a car on the N2 at Khayelitsha on Saturday night. His alcohol levels were tested when a metro police officer on the scene noticed he was not stable on his feet.

The driver of the other vehicle was also arrested after being tested.

Captain Frederick van Wyk told the newspaper that the two were due in court only next year.

Asked why the case had been postponed without a first appearance, he referred the newspaper to the National Prosecuting Authority, which declined to comment.
