Quezon City policemen arrested a fellow police officer assigned with the Eastern Police District for allegedly firing his gun and crashing his vehicle onto other cars in Quezon City Friday evening.
The arrested police officer was identified as Senior Inspector Christopher Obrial, detailed at the Pasig Police Station.
A police report disclosed that Obrial had already been relieved after firing his gun indiscriminately and crashing his car onto other vehicles in Kamuning, Quezon City around 11:30 p.m.
Authorities said the police officer was drunk when responding policemen came and accosted him along Kamuning Road in what appeared to be a case of road rage.
