A DRUNK policeman was arrested Monday evening for alleged indiscriminate firing at Brgy. Bolilao, Mandurriao, Iloilo City.
The arrest of PO2 Al Rebo, who is detailed at the Iloilo River Esplanade, is no surprise even to his colleagues.
Rebo, who was reassigned at the Mandurriao Police Sub-Station a week ago from the Jaro Police Station, had been involved in the same offense in the past years.
“Sabi niya, na-suspend na siya ng three months before,” said Senior Insp. Leah Rose Peña, Mandurriao Police Station chief.
On top of that, he also hugged the limelight twice for, again, illegally firing his gun.
In Monday night’s incident, Rebo apparently again got drunk during a despedidaor send off party for the foreigner-husband of his sister-in-law.
At the height of the party, witnesses claimed that Rebo fired his gun thrice.
