A Tshwane metro cop lost his temper after a bus driver refused to pull of the road into "the bushes".
A bus, which was registered in Namibia, was pulled over recently, but the driver refused to stop 'in the bushes' and it infuriated the cops.
The bus driver complained about being pulled over in the bushes and metro cop lost his cool, telling him: "this is not f***ing Namibia".
According to News24, Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba said the department was aware of the video. Mahamba said they know a lot of truck and bus drivers are weary to pull off in remote areas.
However, he added they should drive to the nearest police station or petrol station and make their intentions know.
"Our members should at all times treat members of the public and motorists with the respect they deserve," Mahamba said.
Social media users had a lot to say about the incident, and Briefly.co.za decided to take a look at some of the reactions.
Maxwell Thabo Gee commented: "In South Africa criminals wear police uniform, I don't blame the driver."
Monica Bolgann added, "Cops here have such a bad name what do they expect. Trucks get hijacked too."
Isaac Jordaan wrote: "Wolves in sheep clothing. Why stop people in the middle of nowhere."
