Cop held after taxi driver shot

A police inspector was arrested yesterday after he allegedly shot a
minibus taxi driver in a fit of road rage in Dobsonville, according to
Soweto police.

Inspector Kay Makhubele said the off-duty Moroka police station officer
was driving his vehicle on the Doornkop/Dobsonville Road behind a
minibus taxi at about 7am.

"It's not clear what sparked the quarrel, but the taxi driver is said to
have stopped his vehicle, alighted, went to the officer and assaulted
him with a knobkerrie."

The officer allegedly retaliated by firing a shot which hit his 28-year
old attacker in the left thigh.

The 51-year old policeman was arrested on the scene.
