The attractive Muvhango actress Phindile Gwala has cooled her feet for just a few hours in the police cells during the wee hours of last week Saturday after drinking a little too much alcohol and driving thereafter.
This happened because the sexy actress from Eshowe in KwaZulu-Natal, who plays ‘Nonny’ in the SABC2 soapie, was caught by police officers for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.
Sandton police spokesman Warrant Officer Moses Maphakela confirmed they have a case of drinking and driving opened against the seductive Phindile Gwala, who was arrested at the time and detained at the police station for a few hours.
“The charges were withdrawn at the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Monday morning,” said Maphakela.
But he refused to say why the charges were withdrawn by the court.
Police report says, 30-year old Phindile Gwala was stopped minutes into the early hours of Saturday morning during a roadblock. She was then tested for alcohol and it was discovered that she was drunk. She was driving a blue Audi A5, according to the officer who administered her Breathalyser test before booking her.
The officer had explained to her the reasons why he stopped her, and asked her to blow into the Breathalyser. The results came back at 0.38 mg/L, above the legal limit. She was then arrested.
The roadblock was organised by members of the Johannesburg Metro Police Department on the corner of Rivonia and Kopje Roads in Morningside, Sandton.
The curvy actress has been rumored to be the source of war between two football stars. Bafana midfielder Makola is alleged to have trampled on Yende’s toes by giving Phindile Gwala magic thrills in bed.
Gwala had not responded to queries at the time of going to press.
