Hoedspruit: Mark Scott-Crossley booked for drunk driving

Mark Scott-Crossley booked for drunk driving

Mark Scott-Crossley was booked for driving under the influence of alcohol. He was stopped by traffic officers doing their routine work in the town of Hoedspruit. Upon realizing that he was inebriated the officers took him to Sekororo Hospital for the collection of his blood specimen.

He was then taken to SAPS Hoedspruit police station to be formally charged for the offence. Formal due processes shall be followed in terms of the law until he appears before a magistrate court. Mark Scott-Crossley is infamous for two matters that had an element of racism: on January 31, 2004 he was convicted and sentenced to life Imprisonment for the murder of the late Nelson Chisale. His sentence was however overturned by the Supreme Court of Appeal and he was given five years for the lesser charge of accessory to the murder. He was then released on parole in 2008.

More recently he was arrested and charged with assault GBH of Mr. Silence Mabunda and he is currently out on bail. Even on this matter it is alleged that he used racial slurs when he confronted the victim. It is alleged that after smashing the victim’s cell phone he came back and run over Mr. Mabunda with his car thereby causing massive injuries to his legs and face.

His latest contravention will test the ability of the state to take a more strict approach to repeat offenders even on unrelated offences since drunk driving is the major cause of deaths on our roads. If he was excessively over the limit it is expected that the law should be applied maximally as a deterrent to would be offenders.
