A Cape Town police officer could be stripped of his badge for allegedly snatching a bottle of whiskey from an undercover police agent, The Times reported on Tuesday.

Henrico Adendorff is also alleged to have demanded and taken a R150 bribe from the agent.

He allegedly took the open bottle of Jack Daniel's from the agent's car.

Next week Adendorff is due to take the stand in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crimes Court, where he will be asked to explain his behaviour.

He has appeared in court several times since January on a charge of corruption, and was arrested in 2011.

According to the prosecution, "The accused, who was a member of the South African Police Service and on duty at the time of the incident, was arrested during a successful...operation by the police."
