JOHANNESBURG: Gauteng police have confirmed that the former Bafana Bafana star was arrested on Monday morning.
A case of domestic violence and damage to property has been opened against Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Andile Jali.
Gauteng police have confirmed that the former Bafana Bafana star was arrested on Monday morning.
His troubles are reportedly connected to excessive drinking.
He was arrested in May this year for drunken driving and Sundowns have confirmed that the midfield star Jali has failed breathalyser tests at training.
He also faces charges of malicious damage to property for allegedly damaging Ndala’s vehicle.
Police said despite officials from Jali’s team Mamelodi Sundowns descending on the Boschkop police station in Pretoria East to demand his release, the request was denied due to “the seriousness of the charges” against the 28-year-old midfielder.
Boschkop police station spokesperson Yeroboam Mbatsane said despite Jali allegedly damaging Ndala’s car, she herself did not sustain any serious injuries.
“The whole incident started when security officials, where Jali stays, called the police due to the fracas. The woman was not seriously hurt, and the only thing was that the car she was driving was damaged,” Mbatsane said.
