Even if I were to quite media tomorrow, I would never unsubscribe from Cape Town’s press list. Because this came through this morning:
Just after 04:00 on Saturday morning, a member of the Integrated Roadblock Unit tried to stop a white VW Jetta traveling towards Kuils River without headlights. The driver refused to stop, resulting in a high-speed chase along Voortrekker Road in the direction of Kuils River. During the chase, the driver of the Jetta tried to drive the officer off the road numerous times. Near the Kuils River police station, the vehicle stopped and two young women jumped out before the driver sped off again, but he misjudged and hit a kerbed centre median, blowing out two of the tyres. The driver was arrested for drunk driving, but refused to provide a breath sample. He was also charged with reckless and negligent driving and intimidation, after threatening the arresting officer’s family. It was later determined that the suspect is a traffic officer based at Gallows Hill in Green Point and that the women who jumped from the vehicle were allegedly prostitutes.
