He was arrested on Friday, said corporation spokesperson Simon Zwane. He declined to disclose any further details of the incident, including the player's name.

Meanwhile, the Johannesburg metro police department said a total of 24 motorists had been arrested for speeding on Johannesburg roads on Friday night. 

"We had operations on the N1 in Midrand and Roodepoort," said Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar.
