Johannesburg - Singer Steve Hofmeyr's son, Armand, was arrested for speeding on the N1 north early on Sunday morning.

Armand, 22, was caught driving at 175km/h.

According to metro police spokesperson Edna Mamonyane, Hofmeyr jnr, also a singer, was pulled over at 0:45 in the morning on the N1 north at the Olifantsfontein off-ramp.

Hofmeyr jnr paid the bail of R500 at the Midrand police station, said Mamonyane.

He will appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court this week.

He was approached for comment, but hung up when he heard it was a Beeld reporter.

Hofmeyr jnr spent a night in jail in March after being arrested for alleged drunken driving.

    strike two, ban him from ever driving again, dangerous driving, bail too light should have spent a week or two in jail as someone's girlfriend, he would then only drink tea at parties, it reminds me of that song by the doors there's a killer on the road

    Not a Hofmeyer fan, but why is this worthy of news headline? I sometimes travel that time of night and find many a shiny car, with dark windows, speeding past me, making me feel like I am standing still – myself doing about 140 or so. Why are they not also in the papers?

    You are all a bunch of idiots! Don't blame him because of who his father is! It was almost 1 o'clock in the morning, roads were relativly quiet - he is a young boy, we all broke the law sometime in our life. Armand - I sincerely hope your docket get lost and this case get thrown out of court!

      Laetitia, let every person without a fault throw a stone. I see so many ass holes talking on the cellphone and doing smss that is much more dangerous. And that is also illegal... I can promise you that these guys criticizing here have all broken the law and are now suddenly the JUDGE

    Yes, leave the young man alone. Beeld is just trying to get sales up again, they have no good news... I stopped buying the paper years ago....

    Speeding hey? Hummph... wait for it to kill... In a lighter vein, why was Mr Malema's son not arrested for inciting racial hatred towards whites and threatening war against Botswana; all of these kill too. Just curious.
