Some breaking late night drama for you.
5FM DJ, Gareth Cliff has been arrested in Johannesburg and will spend the evening in jail for driving 182km/h in a 120km/h zone.
This from the Star.
“It is too late for him to get bail. He will spend the night at the police station and will appear in court tomorrow (Wednesday),” said Gauteng high-speed traffic Police Spokesman Busaphi Nxumalo. She said he would be charged with speeding and reckless driving.” [STAR]
Oh and while i was doing a check on this story i came across this semi-relevant quote from Gareth on the road safety awareness website, Arrive Alive.
182km/h….you should know better Gareth.
UPDATE: Gareth stated on Twitter soon after midnight that “Rumours of my imprisonment are greatly exaggerated…”
UPDATE 2: here’s video of Liezel V from the Expesso show this morning chatting live on air with Gareth Cliff explaining his arrest last night.
So according to Gareth he didn’t spend any time at all behind bars, but he was ‘stupid’ to speed at 182km/h.
