- A comical video showed how a sneaky motorist evaded traffic police
- The motorist was pulled over by the 4 officers, but outsmarted the cops as he sped away from them
- The footage was shared via social media with many questioning the wisdom and training of the 4 cops
South Africans saw the funny side of an arrest gone horribly wrong after a video was shared via twitter on Sunday.
The footage was shared by twitter user, @mantshego, and shows how a car is pulled over by 4 traffic officers.
One of the cops approach the driver’s side, but the motorist locks his door.
The remaining 3 cops swiftly follow suit so essentially the cop car is left unoccupied.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the alert motorist then realises the cops’ error in judgement as he soon sneaks past them and speeds away.
The stunned cops look on in disbelief as the man’s quick-thinking catches them off-guard.
All four of them get back into their vehicle, but the suspect has made a clear getaway.
The incident is caught on camera by another onlooking motorist and he can be heard calling the officers a “bunch of losers” and that they don’t know how to get the car started.
“Oh my tonsil,” the witness says in disbelief.
Briefly.co.za understands the incident took place in Botswana, but the social media reaction was as entertaining as ever.
