Black Coffee arrested for speeding on Christmas Eve
Black Coffee arrested for speeding on Christmas Eve. The DJ who is now out on R 800 bail until he appears in court, took to social media to tell his side of the story. He claims that he was on the road to a family emergency and took a chance with speeding.
“He was taken to the Florida police station where he was detained. He received a bail of R800 and is expected to appear in court tomorrow [Monday].” Said Metro Police spokesperson Edna Mamonyane.
He also makes it clear that he is not an advocate for speed driving and that he is simply owning up to his mistake. Black Coffee arrested for speeding is a little surprising since as a public figure he manages a respectable and upstanding image.
He was going 200 km per hour in a 120 km zone on the N1 highway near the Maraisberg Bridge in his blue Maserati. He was arrested and taken to the Florida police station.
Black Coffee arrested for speeding social media statement:
“As some of you may have learned that on the eve of Christmas, 24 Dec I committed an unfortunate offense of driving beyond the recommended speed limit. My occupation as a DJ requires long distance travelling and on that night I was on the way to fulfill another of my work obligations,” he said in the statement. While on the way, I received a family emergency call which compelled me to drive back home as a matter of urgency. It was around this hour (23h00) that I regrettably exceeded my speed limit and in hindsight should have been more cautious.
“I am aware that this is the season most rife with road carnage, therefore, adhering to the road laws, taking the necessary precautions in line with our country’s Arrive Alive campaign I’m inclined to express my deepest regrets.”
