CEBU CITY — The policeman, who was caught on video mauling and brandishing his gun at a truck driver, has undergone questioning at the Mandaue City Police Office (MCPO).

PO3 Renato Inot and his cousin, Adelcos Alonzo, were accompanied, on Tuesday, by elements of the City Intelligence Branch of the MCPO who picked them up in Medillen town, northern Cebu, after they informed the CIB of their desire to surrender.

The two underwent interrogation by Senior Supt. Roberto Alanas, acting Mandaue police director, in his office at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

The cousins went to their hometown in Medillen after they figured in an altercation with a truck driver last Friday along A.C Cortes Avenue in Barangay Looc near the First Mandaue-Mactan Bridge, which connects Mactan Island from mainland Cebu.

FEATURED STORIES

Inot was caught on video hitting truck driver Crispen Ricarte several times with his fist while pointing his gun at him.

The same video showed Alonzo pointing a gun at the onlookers while another man wearing a red shirt tried to pacify the two.

The video was posted on Facebook in an effort to identify the two and had become viral since.

The MCPO later identified one of the assailants as one of their own.

Inot didn’t show up for work, prompting Chief Supt. Noli Taliño, police director for Central Visayas, to warn that he would face additional charges for not reporting for work and insubordination.

Ricarte has filed an administrative complaint against Inot.  SFM
