BIDVEST Wits striker Calvin Kadi took his striking exploits off the field when he allegedly tried to operate on his ex-girlfriend Kelebogile Moloi with a beer bottle sans anaesthetic.

The theatre for this unusual operation was the extravagant Icon nightclub in Sandton.

Sandton police spokesperson Captain Kym Cloete confirms that a soccer player was arrested for assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm and spent a night in their crossbar hotel.

"He was arrested on the Monday morning and released on Tuesday morning. But we cannot reveal his identity as he hasn't pleaded yet," she says.

Kadi appeared in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, but was not asked to plead.

He was released on R5000 bail.

Magistrate Selome le Roux postponed the case to next month for mediation negotiations set to take place between the former couple.

An eyewitness, who spoke to Sunday World on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals says the footie invited Moloi to his party.

After chewing fat with the former Portimonese (Portugal) and Veria (Greece) player, Moloi left and chatted with another man who was eyeing her.

This, the eye witness says, did not sit well with Kadi.

"He then threatened to spill a drink on her and she threatened to do the same," says the eyewitness.

It is alleged the short-fused soccer star knitted a brow, bit his lower lip and hit her with a half full beer bottle that left her with a massive gash in the head.

"I could see his lips vibrating with anger. If he wasn't restrained by other people who were sitting next to him, he could have inflicted more damage on her.

"There was blood all over her face and head," says the source.

Our mole says Moloi was taken to a local clinic, where she was stitched up and discharged. She then went to lay a charge. and
