ILOCOS NORTE- A 32-year-old drunk man was arrested after throwing a rock at police officers on Thursday.

The man was identified as Dino Dela Cruz, a resident of Barangay Cadaratan, Bacarra, Ilocos Norte. 

Investigation showed that Dela Cruz hurled a rock towards the cops of Bacarra PNP, who were conducting investigation on a commotion that transpired in Cadaratan.

"Bigla na lang binato ni Dela Cruz ang mga pulis natin na nag-iimbestiga sa commotion, lumalabas kasi na inirereklamo ‘yung sobrang ingay na pagvivideoke ng grupo ni Dela Cruz," said Jephre Taccad, chief of police of Bacarra PNP.

Officers were able to avoid the rock but Dela Cruz was injured after fleeing and losing his balance because of drunkenness.

"Maraming nakakita na nadapa siya kaya tumama ‘yung mukha niya sa semento," Taccad said.

(Many people saw him fall and hit his face on the ground.)

A direct assault case has been filed against Dela Cruz, who refused to give any statement.
