A Daveyton man passed by and saw a stunning green Lamborghini being pulled over by the Ekurhuleni Metro Police Department (EMPD).
Tumelo Mngomezulu, who is a sports car enthusiast, felt he couldn’t pass up the opportunity of capturing the vehicle with a video recording.
He barely got any footage of the car when police officers approached him and threatened that he immediately stopped filming.
The video clip shows the officers approaching Mngomezulu aggressively while pointing fingers.
Briefly.co.za gathered the cops threatened to slap him and implied he had no right to film them.
Mngomezulu then responds to the men to say, “I don’t see a Lamborghini every day, I never see Lamborghini every day. I don’t want to fight with you.”
Times Live reported that an EMPD spokesperson confirmed a case of intimidation was opened and the investigation is currently being conducted.
Mngomezulu revealed he lodged the complaint with the EMPD and upon showing them the footage, they encouraged him to open the case.
Footage of the incident has already gone viral and many are calling for tough disciplinary action.
