Security Guard Faces Charges After He Act as Soldier to Escape Traffic Violation
A security guard was arrested in Manila after allegedly act to be a soldier to escape a traffic violation at a checkpoint in Paco, Manila.
The suspect, identified as Romeo Puyat Jr., 32, a security guard, would have been charged with a simple traffic violation if he hadn’t introduced himself as a soldier to police manning at a checkpoint in Paco, Manila, on Monday night.
The man was driving a black MPV when he was stopped due to a traffic jam at the checkpoint on Leon Guinto Street in Paco. Instead of cooperating with the police, he arrogantly introduced himself as a member of the Philippine Army.
The man was dressed in a soldier’s uniform, according to Ermita Police Commander Police Lt. Col. Evangeline Cayaban. The officers, on the other hand, was suspicious because he was not wearing his uniform shoes.
The defendant said he didn’t have any clothes on him. The cops were suspicious and demanded his identification, but the guy left because he was in a rush.
He had the security guard’s ID and could no longer provide valid evidence of becoming a soldier when he was able to present his identity. He also has three passports, so no one knows who he is.
He is from Pampanga and has recently arrived in Manila, according to the man. However, the car’s dashcam video shows that it went back and forth to Manila many times.
He was also unable to produce the registration for the car, which he said had only been leased. The man’s past and the identity of the vehicle’s owner are also being investigated by police.
He will face charges of violating the Land Transportation and Traffic Code, as well as resistance and disobedience to an individual in authority, usurpation of authority, and the Philippine Passport Act.
