The Range Rover with no number plate belonged to Shatta Wale but was being driven by another person.

Upon arriving at the place after being called, Shatta Wale verbally assaulted the police officer in charge and drove off in another unregistered car

This necessitated his arrest, DSP Buckman confirmed to Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM.

She said “Shatta Wale was picked up by the police on Sunday and granted enquiry bail.

“It wasn’t just unregistered, it had no number plate at all, which goes against our laws.

“In an attempt for the policeman to ask questions…Shatta Wale assaulted the police officer and also exhibited insulting behaviour. Because of that, he was arrested on Sunday and he’s been granted police enquiry bail to reappear at the police station this morning.”

According to her, assault does not only consist of a physical battery but insults as well, especially to an officer of the law carrying out his official duties.

“If you look at Act 29 [of the Criminal Code 1960], a person does an act of assault where the intent is to lead to harm or cause any other event that will lead to harm,” she said.

“It is an offence for anyone to drive a vehicle with no number plate at all.

“Every vehicle owner must either possess the normal registration plate or an interim one (DV or DP), she said stressing “nobody can drive a vehicle in this country without any form of registration, no way!?”
