A police constable was released on bail and is expected to appear in the Wolmaranstad Magistrates’ Court in the North West later on Monday, on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless or negligent driving and use of state vehicle without consent.

This after a video showing the constable in full police uniform seemingly intoxicated, went viral.

In the video, the police constable in full uniform is seen struggling to stand steady on his feet where he is inspecting a state motor vehicle.

He is checking what appears to be a scratch caused by a collision of the state vehicle with a fence in Extention 10 Tswelelang location in Wolmaranstad.
