A 28-year-old man who was arrested after driving recklessly in Accra is expected to appear in court on Monday, October 25.

The suspect, Kofi Buckman, was a viral video driving a grey Mercedes Benz at the Airport junction off the 37- Legon road in Accra dangerously.

He was filmed drifting dangerously under a traffic light that had signalled motorists to stop on Saturday, October 23.

Per the amateur footage, he then drove into the middle of the four-lane road and, in a Fast and Furious fashion, turned his car in circles and eventually sped off before the traffic light turned green.

Police say Mr Sasa turned himself in on Sunday morning with some relatives as the Airport Police Station began investigations into the matter.

He was subsequently detained until processes for him to be arraigned were completed.

Speaking to JoyNews, Divisional MTTD Commander, Supt John Atanga, explained that “I’ve just given them [suspect’s family] a call to come so that he can be granted bail, and then we go to court tomorrow.”

“These days, we have cameras everywhere. So you don’t [break the law] and go free,” he told Emefa Apawu.
