Johannesburg - The Audi driver who became famous this week after speeding off with a traffic officer clinging to her car’s bonnet has been arrested, the Gauteng Department of Community Safety has confirmed.
The video went viral on social media channels this week (see below) and according to preliminary information, the incident took place in Krugersdorp last Friday, September 13.
According to the Department, the police officer in the video was busy issuing the Audi driver with a fine for using her cellphone while driving, when she suddenly decided to speed off. The brave officer then tried to stop her by jumping onto the Audi’s bonnet.
The car was then blocked by a Nissan taxi, after which the driver was immediately arrested for “failing to comply with an instruction of a traffic officer, reckless driving and resisting arrest.” On top of that, she was also slapped with the original fine for using her cellphone.
