Johannesburg - A Moroka Swallows player has been arrested for speeding on the R21 near the Olifantsfontein offramp on Saturday, Gauteng traffic police's high speed unit said.

"(He was caught) travelling at 171km/h with his Silver Jeep SRT whilst on his way to the airport," spokesperson Bushapi Nxumalo said.

The 30-year-old was arrested and charged with reckless and negligent driving with an alternative charge of exceeding the speed limit.

He will appear in the Tembisa Magistrate's Court soon.

Swallows, who have the weekend off in the Absa Premiership, lie third in the standings with 12 points after seven matches.

    He was arrested over speeding, then what? Soccer players are people too. I dont know if this is really a good story.

      You're right Okuhle, soccer players are just people like all of us, speeding by any one of them is no big deal.

    Give the man a break,its not like he took a gun and shot dead someone(let cars with speed limit of only 90km be designed then).The same goes for Jub Jub and his ally.Bereaved families,though it is difficult,find it in your hearts,to FoRGIVE for they didnt know what they were doing,they ve learnt their lesson.'Put your faith in God.
