The viral video on Facebook showing a so-called cop in civilian clothes while trying to arrest a certain male person in San Antonio, Zambales is now under investigation by police authorities. Said person was actually being apprehended thru warrantless arrest for allegedly pushing, kicking and attacking with pointed metal object one personnel of San Antonio Municipal Police Station for no apparent reason.
