Motorist Samson Rivero 'threatened' MMDA constable-Danilo Dagunot faces charges

By: DiversityHuman in News

Samson Rivero, a 48-year-old businessman accused of threatening a traffic enforcer of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) was arrested by the police.

Danilo Dagunot, MMDA traffic constable, was allegedly threatened by Samson Rivero with a gun after Rivero was apprehended by the MMDA traffic officer on Friday for illegal use of commemorative license plates.

According to Dagunot, Rivero introduced himself as a member of the Philippine National Police and appeared to reach for his weapon, prompting the traffic aide to flee the scene.

Dagunot then sought help from a Mandaluyong police officer.

Rivero was arrested by police, but he denied that he was hostile in dealing with Dagunot. He also denied that he introduced himself as a police officer.

Rivero, a resident of Baclaran, ParaƱaque, was driving a BMW sedan with a National Bureau of Investigation commemorative plate.

He is facing charges of life threat and usurpation of authority.

This new incident reminds me of the Blair Carabuena and MMDA Saturnino Fabros incident which for me a very sensationalized issue. Now we have MMDA Dagunot against Rivero. I have a question though, was there a video of this new incident which can serve as an ultimate proof of Dagunot's accusation?

I doubt that this would become a hit without a video footage like the Blair-Fabros incident.
