Abusive Quezon cop disarmed
LUCENA CITY—Quezon police provincial director Senior Supt. Valeriano de Leon has ordered a local policeman to be disarmed and to face investigation due to alleged drunken and abusive conduct inside a bar here on Tuesday.
“I will not tolerate any kind of abuses from my policemen,” De Leon said on Thursday.
Businessman Ronaldo Javierto, owner of Road 62 Bar and Restaurant here, on Wednesday filed at the city police a complaint of alarm and scandal against PO3 Felix Avillo Jr., assigned to Buenavista town.
Javierto called the city police station for help at around 9 p.m. on Tuesday after a drunken Avillo started harassing his customers. But the drunken cop was able to leave the premises before the lawmen arrived.
Thirty minutes later, Avillo returned to the bar and again created trouble, Javierto said in his complaint.
Avillo was only pacified after his father, incumbent Lucena Councilor Felix Avillo Sr., arrived and took his son home.
De Leon said three months ago, he assigned Avillo, a former member of the Lucena City police station, to far-flung Buenavista as disciplinary action for abusive behavior. Delfin T. Mallari Jr., Inquirer Southern Luzon
