Cape Town police have confirmed that a SAPS member has been arrested after allegedly trying to bribe a man involved in a drunk driving case.
The policeman apparently said he could make the case disappear for three thousand rands.
The 25-year-old Table View constable was caught at an eatery opposite the Bayside Mall around noon, when he handed the man the case docket, and was given the money in cash. The man went to the Hawks after being offered the bribe.
The suspect is expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Monday.
