Mayor Rey Uy lashed out on agents of the regional National Bureau of Investigation office in Davao City for arresting with “ill-motive” four traffic enforcers here on Thursday.
A visibly irked Uy told reporters here Friday he would press charges against the NBI agents, whom he accused of playing favorites in making the arrest.
“Definitely it was personal, biased. It was done disrespectfully,” he said.
Willy Derecho, assistant chief of the Tagum City Traffic Management Unit said traffic officers Pacifico Bantayan Jr., Ariel Bardinas, Rodolfo Rodinas Jr. and Cyrian Vin Lenueva were manning their respective posts along the busy national highway in Barangay Magugpo Poblacion when two vehicles, a van and a pickup truck suddenly arrived past 4 p.m. Thursday.
