Jali was driving his personalised Jali 15 GP white Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT in the company of a male friend when he was arrested.
Jali's manager Mike Makaab said he was in Belgium and did not have first-hand information on the matter but that his client "denies the allegations". Jali also tweeted from Pretoria yesterday denying reports that he was nabbed.
Jali, 28, returned to South Africa this year after his contract ended with Belgian club K.V Oostende last month after nearly four-and-a-half seasons in the Jupiler League.
He left the country to join Oostende in January 2014 after spending five-and-a-half seasons at Orlando Pirates.
According to Mahamba, Jali was unable to be granted bail on Saturday as he had given the police two different addresses and they had to verify which was the authentic one.
In 2011, Jali and his former teammate Ndumiso Mabena were arrested after allegedly assaulting Kagisho Molora outside the News Café in Woodmead, Sandton, in Johannesburg. The charges were later withdrawn.
