And the next case of police lawlessness is in San Pedro. Last night at around midnight, there was a fight at a bar on Glitters Street.

Two off-duty cops got into it with one Poleto August of the DFC area. The altercation caused other patrons inside the bar to also become aggressive towards the officers. The officers then went outside the bar onto the street and fired their weapons. Police later found two 9mm expended shells on the street in front of the bar. No one received any gunshot wounds but after the altercation, August had to be taken to the San Pedro Poly Clinic for treatment of a cut wound over his left eye. The firearm that was allegedly fired was retrieved for testing and the matter is being investigated by the Professional Standards Branch.

What ever happened to those police who roughed up the girl in the park and fired their weapon indiscriminately?

Problem Pair of Pistolero Police on Pedro

ACP Chester Williams discussed the case in San Pedro town where two off duty police officers got lawless in a bar. They got into an altercation, and when the crowd RUSHED THEM, THEY WENT OUTSIDE AND ALLEGEDLY DISCHARGED A FIREARM. Williams told us what police know so far:...

ACP Chester Williams
"There were 2 officers who went to a club on Glitter Street and while inside the club they had a dispute with one Rolito August. That disagreement ended up in the officer allegedly causing injuries to August to the extent of wounding. And August had made a report to the police in San Pedro and that report has been forwarded to my office. It is also allege that after the incident occurred with August that the officers were attacked by patrons of the club and that resulted in officers discharging their weapon. So the report has been obtained and I will be reviewing the file tomorrow and give a directive where that is concerned, but more than likely from what I have read and what I had been briefed the officers should be charged for wounding the least, hopefully sometime next week."

A shooting incident involving two off-duty police officers attached to the San Pedro Police Formation is being investigated by the Professional Standards Branch (PSB). The incident reportedly left 20-year-old Poleto August of the DFC subdivision with a cut wound over his left eye. The official report says that the incident took place at a local bar located on Glitter Street in San Pedro Town. Investigation reveals that about 12 AM, two off-duty police officers were socializing at the bar when an altercation ensued between August and the officers. August was allegedly injured by one of the officers , and because of that, patrons inside the bar started to harass the officers, who then stepped out of the bar. The officers walked onto the street, and shots were heard, shortly after. When police arrived they found two 9mm shells on the street in front of the bar. The 9mm firearm that was allegedly fired was retrieved for testing. Minutes after, police, acting on information received, visited the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic II where they observed August suffering from an injury to the left eye.
