According to the Daily Sun, Gcaba was supposed to appear in court in January, after he was arrested for speeding, but the Bucs star never pitched and a warrant for his arrest was given.

It is believed that the reason for Gcaba’s no-show was that the defender had been called up to the Bafana Bafana squad.

However, he did not notify the court of this nor SAFA that he had to appear in court.

But the police finally caught up with Gcaba on Thursday and arrested him. He has since appeared in court - so at least he eventually ended up in one.
