A high-speed chase through the Cape Flats ended in a gunfight after a car rammed pursuing traffic co.
The One Direction star recently completed his takeover of Doncaster Rovers soccer club and in a bid to raise funds for the team he's offering his fans the chance to have their picture taken with him in return for a £250 pledge.
The 22-year-old heartthrob - along with his business partner, former Doncaster Rovers chairman John Ryan - has launched a campaign on Crowdfunder and has set a £2 million target for the League One side.
The Tomlinson Ryan Trust have donated a six-figure sum to show their commitment and have so far raised £553,617 for the South Yorkshire club by offering soccer and One Direction fans a number of incentives, including photos with Louis and thank-you videos from the star.
Louis - who is a lifelong fan of his hometown soccer club - said: ''I want to see the Doncaster Rovers supporters get the club the success it deserves ... This is a big step which I believe will open up opportunities to provide a very, very exciting future for the club and its supporters.''
However, fans will be left disappointed if the £2 million sum is not raised as pledge rewards will only be given out if the Trust reach their target.
