Woman who assaulted Manila traffic aide arrested as drug courier
The raging woman who hit and shouted at a Manila traffic enforcer is facing even more charges after city officials learned that she is also a suspected drug courier.
Manila police reported the arrest of Pauline Mae Altamirano on Thursday morning after she was caught on camera assaulting enforcer Marcos Anzures after she was flagged for a traffic violation along Osmeña Highway.
The 26-year-old shrieked and collared Anzures who flagged her car for beating the red light. This is the basis of her arrest for charges of Direct Assault and Resistance and Disobedience to a Person in Authority. She also could not present a driver’s license.
By Friday, the Manila Public Information Office announced that the same woman was in trouble again, this time for alleged drug trafficking.
“Napag-alamang drug courier ang babaeng traffic violator na nagmaneho nang walang lisensya at nanakit ng enforcer sa Malate, ayon sa ulat ng MPD SMaRT,” the Manila PIO said in a Facebook post. “Arestado rin ang mga kasabwat nito sa isang operasyon na naganap sa tapat ng Universidad de Manila.”
