IMUS CITY, Cavite – The National Police Commission 4A (Calabarzon) has recognized a policeman who was slapped and kicked by a female motorist in a traffic altercation in Imus City, Cavite last February 5.

The recognition was made during a flag-raising ceremony held at the new Imus City Hall in Bgy. Malagasang 1-G, this city.

Police Staff Sergeant Philip Andrew Garingo of the Imus City Component Police was awarded a Certificate of Commendation after the viral video, where he can be seen being slapped and even kicked by a girl who doesn’t want to follow what the police say.

It can be seen in the video that Garingo remained calm despite being hurt by the female motorist.

Attorney Owen De Luna, acting regional director of the National Police Commission (Napolcom), Imus City Mayor Alex “AA” Advincula, Vice Mayor Homer Saquilayan and Imus City police chief Lt. Col. Jack Angog led the recognition of Garingo and his buddy, Patrolman Marvin Bobis, of the Imus PNP.

The woman in the viral video, who was also found to be drunk, ended up in jail after testing positive in the alcohol breath test analysis.

Multiple cases were filed against the female motorist.

Garingo said the woman apologized to him when he visited her in jail a few days after the incident.

The Napolcom said Garingo’s behavior should be emulated and be made as an example that even though he could burst into anger due to the physical pain he experienced, he remained calm in such a situation.
