Moneoa address the arrest rumours (1)

Yesterday rumours made rounds on the internet claiming that singer Moneoa was released on R1500 after being arrested for drinking and driving.

According to Daily Sun, a police officer said “she was driving with two other people in the car, and it seemed like they had been partying the previous night. When she was stopped at the road block, she tried using her celebrity influence to get her off the hook.”

Speaking to Drum, Moneoa said everything is being blown out of proportion and it was not really an arrest.

“It wasn’t necessarily an arrest, I was written up, yes. I went to the police station, did my paperwork and then they sent me home.”

“They said I was driving under the influence but I feel like it was agenda, because the limit is 0.24 and I was on 0.26, so I feel like the police officer had an agenda. Also because I was the only person he arrested that day, so it was probably planned, someone must have been behind it, I don’t know.”

The singer further told the magazine that her boyfriend went to the police station with his lawyer because hers couldn’t make it on time; fortunately, she was then written up and sent home. So people are lying when they say she was locked up.
