Background Story

It happened that Paintsil’s wife lodged a complaint at the police station against him for allegedly stealing her car. Paintsil who reported to the station with his wife reportedly refused to give out information on the allegations when he felt the interrogations were being compromised.

More so, on attempting to walk out on the police, the commander had ordered Paintsil’s arrest to enable him get answers from him. This had led to Paintsil slapping the police commander amid the fuss. He was immediately arrested after he slapped the Police commander.

News about their marriage is still vague at the moment as the public’s eye is focused on the ongoing assault case, as well as his alleged car theft. We would keep you updated with subsequent information on the case.
