MANILA – A traffic enforcer was caught in a cellphone video cursing at a truck driver in Tondo, Manila.

The footage, reportedly taken last August 30, shows traffic enforcer Ruel Ramos confronting the truck driver. Apparently, Ramos got mad after the truck almost hit him while it was moving in reverse.

The truck driver is seen trying to calm down an angry Ramos, who was repeatedly cursing at the driver. However, the traffic enforcer even dared the driver to get off the truck.

The footage, which has since gone viral, caught the attention of the Manila city government. Because of this, Ramos was suspended from work, according to Vice Mayor Isko Moreno.

''Ang basis ng kanyang preventive suspension ay ang kanyang actuations,'' Moreno said. – report from Raia Capulong, ABS-CBN News
