MANILA (AdChoiceTV News) — A 26-year-old female driver was arrested after assaulting, resisting, and disobeying a Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau (MTPB) officer along Osmeña Highway in Malate, Manila on Thursday.
According to a spot report from MPD S.Ma.R.T., the motorist, identified as Pauline Altamirano, was stopped by MTPB enforcer Marcos Anzures Jr. after she was spotted beating the red light.
She, however, continued driving, which prompted the officers to chase her. When she was stopped, she refused to present her driver’s license or other documents.
After the enforcers sought the assistance of a mobile crew, the suspect wasn’t able to present her license but instead gave a copy of her OR/CR.
When she was instructed by the officers to follow them to the impounding area, she refused and began to assault them.
In a video posted by the Manila Public Information Office, she was shown beating up Anzures while asking for her OR/CR back. The enforcer was also seen bleeding due to the assault.
