MAYVILLE police in Durban have laid a charge of crimen injuria against a man who allegedly called them "useless k-----s and baboons".
The man allegedly stormed into the station and jumped the queue. When no one would assist him ahead of others in the queue, he started verbally insulting the officers on duty.
"The man had a protection order from court and wanted the police to accompany him to serve it on his wife," police spokesperson Vincent Mdunge said.
"But the police told him to wait and that's when the drama unfolded."
The station commissioner took the man to his office in an effort to calm him down.
"The police finally accompanied the man to serve the court papers. He was expected to be arrested soon," he said.
