Six members of the Philippine Army 79th Infantry Battalion were arrested early Thursday morning after causing a disturbance inside a Cadiz City bar.
Police identified the arrested soldiers as Army Corporal Louie Tamparing; along with Private First Class John Anthony Jeminez, Johnny Gallano, Mark Vargas, Jerome Danias, and Regie Rogan.
Based on information provided by Cadiz City police, the six allegedly destroyed tables and mauled several customers inside Cheller’s Resto Bar, which is located along Gustilo Boulevard in the city’s Barangay Zone 2.
The victims immediately filed a complaint before the Cadiz City police, which resulted in the arrest.
Authorities also disarmed the soldiers and recovered four .45 caliber pistols in their possession.
The six potentially face criminal charges over the incident and are presently detained at the Cadiz City Police Station./DGB, WDJ
