handcuffsNews24 reports that three Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) officers were arrested for allegedly soliciting a bribe from a motorist in Pretoria West on Friday.  

The motorist reported the three female officers after they stopped him for driving towards oncoming traffic.  The TMPD communication unit indicated:  "Instead of issuing a fine, the three officers allegedly demanded money from the motorist.  The motorist alleges that he gave them the money and took down their vehicle registration as they left.  He then went to the TMPD offices to report the incident where he was immediately assisted."  The officers were arrested for bribery and corruption.  Further investigation and questioning will follow.  The officers will appear in court in due course.  The TMPD added:  "Regardless of the outcome in court, further steps will be taken internally where the accused officers will face disciplinary action.”
