Armed riot police were called in on Friday to apprehend FC Platinum defender Pardon Marima after he got into a nasty fight with a prostitute in a night club, witnesses said.
The fight took place at the FC Platinum club in Zvishavane where music was cut off momentarily due to the brawling, the witnesses said.
Apparently, Marima, who appeared dead drunk, fought with the unidentified woman after he took her mobile phone following a misunderstanding. The woman retaliated by snatching Marima’s borrowed phone. This infuriated the former soldier and Buffaloes player’s possé, who started assaulting the prostitute.
“There was chaos in the club as bouncers failed to restrain Marima and his crew. Eventually, some armed riot police who were outside the club, were called and they put him in handcuffs before taking him to the local police station,” a witness said.
Marima was, however, freed after allegedly paying a $30 bribe and returning the woman’s phone, a source said.
