A policeman is in hot water after he was arrested for mauling and indiscriminately firing his .45 caliber pistol hitting himself and two brothers in Barangay Sta. Cruz, Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay last Tuesday night.

Arrested was PO3 Reynaldo Ambayec of the Kabasalan Municipal Police Station. He sustained a gunshot wound in the leg.
The two victims were identified Dado and Jordan Bagcus. They were treated at a hospital for bruises and gunshot wounds.

A police report disclosed thatAmbayec and the Bacus brothers were drinking at a store with separate companions.

The policeman was reportedly telling a story in Subanon dialect when suddenly Dado and Jordan who were sitting on another table laughed.

Ambayec felt insulted and got infuriated. He pulled out his handgun and mauled the victims.

Not contented, the policeman fired his gun on the ground several times hitting Dado and his brother. Ambayec was also hit in the leg. — Noning R. Antonio
