Wild scenes broke out at the Mitchells Plain taxi rank where a team of SAPS police officers struggled to contain one of their rogue colleagues.
Watch: SAPS police officers throw hands at Mitchells Plain taxi rank
Context is not yet attached to this video clip that has since gone viral on social media. From what we observe in the video, which you can watch below, it seems a team of police officers was dragged into a brawl after failing to contain one of their colleagues.
The short and stubby officer, completely blinded by rage, kept hurling slurs targeted at President Cyril Ramaphosa. He was also heard screaming out loud about his affinity for motorbikes and why babies are important.
Yeah, totally bizarre stuff.
Instead of piling into the Golden Arrow bus that was idling by its station, onlookers pulled their cameras out and recorded the wild scenes unfolding before their eyes.
Shockingly, five SAPS police officers struggled, for quite a while, to contain the man in uniform, who, by all accounts, may have been on duty at the time.
At one point, the feisty officer pulled off a wildly amateurish roundhouse kick to keep his colleagues at bay. Of course, his valiant attempts taxed his unfit body and before the video clip ends, the man concedes to capture and falls on his back, struggling to breathe from all that cardio.
It remains unclear, at this stage, what the cause of the furore was. According to police, however, “the member has been referred to a medical facility for assistance.”
“We are aware of the incident where a police member stationed at Mitchells Plain SAPS acted out of character. “The member has been referred to a medical facility for assistance, and while this aspect is being attended to, an internal investigation is under way,” the statement read.
Here are clips of the viral video that left social media in stitches, with other users completely dumbfounded about the bizarre scenes.
