Tuesday, July 10, 2012
THE head of the Bacolod Traffic Authority Office filed charges for violation of Republic Act 4136 or an Act to Compile the Laws Relative to Land Transportation and Traffic Rules on Monday against the father of Youth Council chairman.
Police Chief Inspector Luisito Acebuche said he filed charges for reckless driving, driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor and driving without license against Herman Villarosa, the father of Karen, 18, Barangay Estefania’s Youth Council chair.
Acebuche and Villarosa together with Villarosa’s wife and daughter were involved in a traffic altercation in Providence Subdivision recently.
The two parties also earlier met with City Police Director Ricardo De la Paz for a possible settlement but no agreement was reached.
The Villarosas told the city director that Acebuche, who was driving his car, threw an air freshener can at their vehicle when they were passing near Rolling Hills Memorial Park, overtook their vehicle and waited for them in front of the gate of the subdivision.
They added that Acebuche also badmouthed them and threatened them with a 45 caliber pistol.
However, Acebuche denied their allegations, claiming that he never had any confrontation with them.
He admitted that he was armed with a gun when he alighted from his car to try to stop the vehicle of the Villarosas but he denied that he threatened them.
