American charged with assaulting cop in Bacolod

By

BACOLOD CITY, Philippines—An American national faces various charges for berating and punching a policeman inside a police station in Bacolod City.

Allan Mark Earnest, 57, of Kentucky,  has been charged with direct assault upon an agent or person in authority, alarm and scandal, slander by deeds and resisting arrest at the Bacolod City Prosecutor’s Office by Senior Police Officer 1 Paul Peduhan, Station 3 chief Senior Inspector Dianne Aquitania said.

Peduhan said he and his men arrested Earnest at his apartment at Eroreco Subdivision in Barangay (village) Mandalagan past 10 p.m. Sunday upon the complaint of his live-in partner whom he had allegedly battered.

Earnest, who was reportedly under the influence of liquor, threw  punches at Jay-Ar Padilla, the caretaker of the apartment, but he hit Peduhan instead. When he was brought to the police station, he also berated the policemen who were trying to detain him.

The American apologized but Aquitania said it was too late.

        What is part of the job? Getting hit or drunks mouthing off? Not sure how it is in the States, but up here in the great white north, you hit a copper, you are going to be charged. Zero tolerance policy for it. Same zero policy for domestic assault.

        As for drunks mouthing off, it is humourous for the most part, but it will definately make the mouther a target for either a ticket or a night’s stay.

         AH THE FOX CALLED KILAWON WEEPS OVER HIS SOUR GRAPES…

        A very hungry fox walked into
        a vineyard where there was an ample supply of luscious looking grapes.
        Grapes had never looked so good, and the fox was famished. However,
        the grapes hung higher than the fox could reach. He jumped and stretched
        and hopped and reached and jumped some more trying to get those yummy
        grapes, but to no avail. No matter what he tried, he could not reach
        the grapes. He wore himself out jumping and jumping to get the grapes.
             ”Those
        grapes surely must be sour,” he said as he walked away, “I
        wouldn’t eat them if they were served to me on a silver platter.”

        THE MORAL TO THIS KILAWON STORY IS THAT IT IS EASY TO HATE WHAT YOU CANNOT HAVE!!!

    Ang ginawa ng isang amerikano ay hindi kasalanan ng lahat ng amerikano na pumupunta dito. Mga pinoy na asawa nambubugbog din naman.

    Ibig sabihin: this is a domestic issue between the couple. Barangay pa lang, maayos na sana yan. Grow up people!
