Cops who shot Jake Cuenca’s car removed from posts

Simultaneously with the filing of the police complaint against Jake Cuenca, five who chased and fired a gun at the actor who hit a civilian were removed from their posts.

On Monday, Jun Veneracion told GMA News “24 Oras” that based on the initial police report, the police had an anti-illegal drug operation in when Cuenca’s vehicle collided with the police vehicle.

But instead of stopping, Jake Cuenca allegedly fled while driving the vehicle himself.

As a result, the police chased the actor and allegedly fired at the tire of Cuenca’s car, but a civilian was hit by a bullet.

As a result, such police officers who will face administrative charges have been removed from their posts, according to Eastern Police District (EPD) director Police Brigadier General Matthew Bacay.

“Hindi po siya part ng SOP for a police officer to use and discharge a firearm doon sa mga humahabol ng fleeing suspects,” the official said.

“We understand the negative sentiments of our kababayan on this issue but let us not forget why this incident happened in the first place. May isang motorista na imbis na humingi ng paumanhin at panagutan ang kaniyang pagkakamali ay gumawa ng eksenang pang-teleserye at pampelikula,” said Eleazar.

Cuenca was charged with disobedience and reckless imprudence with the fiscal.

According to Jake Cuenca’s close friend, the actor came from Paulo Avelino’s place last Saturday.

“Galing si Jake sa kaibigan niyang si Paulo Avelino, nagkatsikahan, bonding kasi Sabado naman.

“Tapos nu’ng pauwi na si Jake, may nadaanan siyang maraming sasakyang nakahinto tapos pinapara siya, hindi niya kilala kasi mga nakasibilyan kaya hindi siya huminto, pinatakbo niya nang mabilis kaya nasagi niya ‘yung isang sasakyang nakaparada sa kalsada.

“Doon na siya hinabol, ayaw niya huminto kaya pinagbabaril ‘yung gulong ng sasakyan niya tapos nu’ng may nakita siyang mga nakaunipormeng pulis na pinara siya saka lang siya huminto. Nu’ng huminto siya, pinababa siya, tsinek ‘yung sasakyan niya, wala namang nakita (na ilegal),” the source said.
