Mofokeng said they were still waiting for his blood results.

The 37-year-old “was arrested on Saturday 2 am”, he said. Leope, arrested on Main Reef road near Randfontein was detained at the Krugersdorp police station, police said.

The former Metro FM DJ was last year arrested for the second time for reportedly being caught driving beyond the speed limit. In 2012, he allegedly collided with a security vehicle while driving then girlfriend Terry Pheto’s car.


The DJ has recently come under heavy legal pressure for promoting his energy drink MoFaya during the 14th annual Metro FM Awards and for using a fake South African Bureau of Standards approved logo on the product. He has also been criticised for his fake Forbes Africa magazine cover which went viral on social media.

“He was released on bail of R1,500,” Mofokeng said.
