Mandaluyong police to sue actor Jake Cuenca for damage to police mobile, car chase
Actor Jake Cuenca was taken into custody after he tried to flee the scene when he rammed a police car with his Rubicon Jeep on Saturday (Oct. 9).
Eastern Police District director PBGen. Matthew Bacay told DZBB on Sunday that Cuenca’s car hit a police vehicle in Mandaluyong City around 9 p.m. but refused to stop.
Authorities then chased his car all the way to Pasig and had to shoot their guns at the vehicle’s tires to get him to a halt. Unfortunately, one of the bullets ricocheted off the car and hit a Grab delivery rider. Bacay, however, said the man is recovering in the hospital.
“He (Jake Cuenca) was arrested kasi mayroong tayong ikakaso sa kanya na Reckless Imprudence Resulting to Damage to Property,” the police officer said.
Police said they did not find anything illegal inside Cuenca’s car, which now had flat tires. He added that the actor is undergoing medical evaluation.
