JOHANNESBURG, Gauteng - A Johannesburg metro police officer has been arrested for soliciting a bribe from a woman driver whom he stopped in Fourways, north of the city, early on Saturday morning (August 9).

A police spokesman said: "At about 3am the corrupt officer stopped the female driver and established that she had consumed alcohol. He told her to withdraw money from an ATM.

"She withdrew R90 and then went to complain to the Douglasdale police, who photographed the cash and watched from a distance as she handed it over to the officer."


Minnaar said the 43-year-old officer was immediately arrested. He is expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Monday (August 11 2014) on charges of corruption.

The internal affairs section of the Johannesburg metro police department has also launched an investigation.

Minnaar said people should call the JMPD corruption hotline if they were stopped, pulled over and asked for a bribe by officers.
