Nota Baloyi has opened up about his recent arrest for allegedly driving reckless and negligent in his complex.
The former manager of rapper Kwesta took to Instagram recently to share that he was "wrongfully" and "unlawfully" arrested by Douglasdale cops on 31 March.
Nota said he was later that day bailed out by his lawyer. He said he was supposed to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court but charges against him were "unconditionally" withdrawn and his bail was refunded without him even appearing in court.
In a lengthy post, Nota explained that he opened a case of assault GBH against the police officers that arrested him. He alleged that they assaulted and denied him the right to contact his lawyers by confiscating his phone.
"The entire incident was captured on CCTV camera and the footage proves that I committed none of the offences I was charged with."
Social media users took to Nota's comment section to share their thoughts on his post. Check out some of their comments below:
"South African police officers are such a shame. I'm so sorry you went through this Nota."
"Mmmm, can’t help but think Coffee was behind all this. Too much of a coincidence."
"Unfortunately This is what happens when you reveal the truth and the character behind the mask about people with people with connections. This country is trash."
"Justice will prevail in this matter."
"So sorry to hear about your experience! SAPD honestly needs a whole restructuring from the top down! This is ridiculous!!"
In related news, Briefly News reported that Nota has accused Black Coffee of sending police to harass him after the pair had a disagreement recently. Just last week, Nota was assaulted at his home and arrested.
The charges against him are for reckless driving and assaulting a police officer. Nota believes that the cops were sent by someone who has a grudge against him. The controversial media personality and Black Coffee have some bad blood between them ever since the Coffee accused Nota of defamation.
He slapped Nota with a cease and desist order and forced him to apologize for some comments he made against him. Nota issued a very passive aggressive apology that did little to alleviate tensions.
In a leaked conversation with an online publication called Everything SA, Nota claimed that he believed Black Coffee sent the cops after him.
