Motorist who drove off with traffic officer faces criminal charges
A Gauteng motorist who sped off with a traffic officer clutching on the top of her car last Friday has been charged with failing to comply with an instruction from an officer, reckless driving and resisting arrest.
In a video circulating on social media, a female traffic police officer was filmed clinging to a car bonnet, while ordering the driver to step out of the vehicle.
Gauteng traffic police explained that the officer was in the process of issuing the 27-year-old female driver with a traffic fine for using a cellphone while driving when the driver chose to drive off.
Eyewitness News (EWN) reporter Sifiso Zulu has more on the story.
