URBAN grooves singer, Tererai Mugwadi, was on Saturday arrested for allegedly insulting police officers, using obscenities, after she was involved in a road traffic accident.
Mugwadi was reported to have physically assaulted a female police officer.
She was detained at Rhodesville Police Station.
One of the eye witnesses told H-Metro the songbird was a nuisance when she was arrested.
“Mugwadi was possibly drunk when she got involved in a road traffic accident.
“Akatukirira mapurisa akauya pascene nemashoko ezvinyadzi ndokuzorova mumwe mupurisa wechidzimai,” said the witness.
Harare provincial deputy police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Webster Dzvova, confirmed the arrest saying the musician is facing disorderly conduct charges.
“Tererai Mugwadi was involved in a road traffic accident around 11pm on Saturday,” said Ass Insp Dzvova.
“Police traffic officers attended the scene and during the recording of statements Tererai was reported to have verbally assaulted the officers using obscene language.
“She was later arrested and detained at around 2am on Sunday and is facing disorderly conduct charges,” he said.
The Waenda hitmaker was in January 2018 found guilty of culpable homicide and fined after she was involved in an accident, which claimed the life of Seremani Marvellous, in September 2017.
