- Unpleasant allegations have emerged following Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies' arrest at OR Tambo International Airport on Sunday morning
- Jantjies had been travelling from Dubai to Johannesburg, on which he is reported to have caused damage to facilities
- Now, other allegations have come to the fore through witnesses who claim that he had also been harassing an air hostess
New details have emerged surrounding the arrest of Springbok player Elton Janjties yesterday at OR Tambo International Airport.
News reports stated that the 31-year-old NRR Hurricanes player had been travelling from Dubai to South Africa via an Emirates Airline flight, on which he caused malicious damage to property that led to his arrest.
News24 then revealed that Jantjies was allegedly harassing an air hostess, according to eyewitnesses. The article alleged that he followed the woman to a toilet, where she locked herself inside.
According to The South African, the witnesses in question said that Jantjies banged on the toilet door for around 10 minutes until his knuckles started bleeding. Furthermore, he was heard shouting, "Komaan, my skat (Come on, my darling)”, to the hostess.
Not long thereafter, Jantjies returned to his seat unsteadily, leaving blood smeared on the toilet's door and some of the plane's seats.
His agency released a statement claiming that the incident had been blown out of proportion.
In short, it read:
"It's alleged that while on board the plane, a light was damaged. We believe that the incident has been unnecessarily heightened. Our client however remains compliant with the investigation process and will address this matter with the seriousness it beckons."
