Rian van Heerden has been fired up about the way traffic officers are so quick to ask drivers for bribes.

Rian was chatting to Desmond Dube when Dube decided to have a bit fun by playing a "corrupt cop" character on air.

His portrayal was so believable that the police and Crime Intelligence arrived at the Jacaranda FM offices in Midrand ready to arrest this "corrupt cop", minutes after the interview. On arrival, they found out that the "corrupt cop" was actually the much-loved South African entertainment personality.
