In his complaint, Bolos said the officer punched him the abdomen several times while hurlying abusive language at him.

The journalist said he and the officer have a long standing feud that was started by Almazan several years ago after he tried to assist a businessman to retrieve his two licensed pistols that the officer confiscated.

Bolos said that he later found out that Almazan sold one of the pistols.
