Mtsweni is not the first Chiefs player to be caught speeding on the road.

Last year, Itumeleng Khune was arrested for driving 173km/h in a 120km/h zone in Centurion and he was ordered to perform 10 hours of community service by the Lyttleton Magistrates Court after his charges were withdrawn.

Khune also publicly apologised.
