In the video taken this Sunday, Andeya was seen topless, without a face mask, and holding two knives while in the middle of the road.

Police surrounded him, but no one came near to him except the negotiator.

Police Colonel Rogelio Simon, Makati police chief, said Andeya’s first reason on why he went beserk was he did not receive financial aid from the government.

But after nearly an hour of negotiations, Andeya calmly surrendered and announced in the precincts that he had also quarreled with his wife, which added to his stress.

Andeya faces several complaints, including alarms and scandals, illegal possession of deadly weapons, and violation of the ordinance on wearing a mask.
