A Scorpions cop has found himself behind bars, after being arrested in Woodstock for drunk driving with one of Cape Town's most notorious gangsters on Tuesday afternoon.

“Police pulled-off a road blue VW Polo with three occupants inside. It was spotted speeding off at the premises when police were there to arrest a specific suspect on a warrant of arrest,” says police spokesperson Eliot Sinyangana.

According to Independent Online the person’s name is Ivor Powell - who worked on the initial stages of the Scorpions' investigation into National Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi.

During his arrested he was with fugitive and alleged Americans gang boss Igshaan Davids.

On Wednesday morning Powel appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court where he has been granted R1 000 bail.

This incident follows the arrest of Gauteng Scorpions boss Gerrie Nel whose corruption charges were withdrawn in the Pretoria magistrate's court.

Attempts to get comments from Adrian Mopp, Western Cape Scopions boss have failed.
