PRETORIA — Blue Bulls prop Bees Roux allegedly became the victim of blackmail at the hands of Metro Police officers after he had spent a drunken evening at an infamous strip club in Pretoria.

Roux had visited the club, Flamingo’s in Church Street, until the early hours of the morning before he was flagged down by Tshwane Metro Police members.

He was arrested for murder after an incident which saw one of the Metro Police officers killed.

Flamingo’s owner Pieter Crous said yesterday that officers of the Tshwane Metro Police would wait for his clients to emerge in the early hours and then drive them away to ATM machines.

“The clients must then draw money and give it to the Metro Police officers or face being arrested for driving while drunk,” explained Crous. He confirmed Roux was at his club on Friday morning.

The Tshwane Metro Police have begun their own investigation into Mohale and the two officers who had instructed Roux to pull off the road.
