Highlanders midfielder Denzel Khumalo was briefly detained at Bulawayo Central Police Station over the weekend after he allegedly got involved in a scuffle at a city night club.

According to the Chronicle, Khumalo was in the company of his team-mate Brian Banda and a friend only named as Sitshela when the incident happened.

It’s reported that the midfielder, who was visibly drunk, stabbed two tyres of a BMW vehicle while his friend broke the windows of the car belonging to a Bosso supporter identified as Sidumisile Ntini.

Khumalo, however, denied the charges when he appeared at the station on Sunday.

When asked what happened, Banda confirmed there was an altercation but claimed that he is not aware about the damage to the car.

He said: “I wasn’t there when the said vehicle was attacked. Of course, there was an altercation between Denzel and some guy who owes him money. I restrained Denzel and we left the club. I was surprised to hear that there was a fight and a car was damaged.”
