Cape Town - A Western Province player is to appear in court on Tuesday on a charge of fraud relating to a vehicle licence.
According to Monday's Cape Times
, team spokesperson Gavin Lewis confirmed that a player had been arrested, hours after Western Province's 25-20
Absa Currie Cup win over Griquas in Kimberley on Saturday.
“We are aware that a Western Province player was arrested. He can’t be named as he hasn’t appeared in court. Charges are not clear but are in relation to a vehicle licensing issue.”
Provincial police spokesperson November Filander confirmed a 22-year-old had been arrested early on Sunday morning.
“This office can confirm that a 22-year-old man was arrested at a roadblock at about 00:30, near Camps Bay police station.”
