The infamous man who went viral on the internet last week for assaulting and mocking barangay traffic enforcers suddenly becomes sick and asked for an ambulance to bring him to St. Luke’s Hospital.
National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Director Guillermo Eleazar shared during an interview that Saint Luke’s Hospital has been already dispatched their ambulance to rescue the suspect Arnold Padilla.
Padilla complained of high blood pressure and chest pains during the search operations of the authorities led by Eleazar in the suspect’s home in Brgy. Magallanes, Makati City.
It was reported that Padilla’s blood pressure rose to 160/90.
“Balita ko nagpadala ng ambulansiya ‘yung St. Luke’s at sinabing masama ang pakiramdam at dadalhin sa ospital ‘yung suspek,” Eleazar said.
Eleazar didn’t like the idea of Padilla, so he ordered a police ambulance to bring the suspect to Camp Bagong Diwa to receive medical treatment.

According to the NCRPO Chief, he would not be fooled by the tricks of Padilla, because he knew that the suspect would only relax in the said private hospital.
“Magre-relax lang iyan sa ospital,” Eleazar said. “Di puwedeng ganun, na tayo’y pinaiikutan nitong mga ito.”
Atty. Raymond Fortun, lawyer of Padilla said that his client was disturbed by his arrest.
He also defended his client, saying that the grenades recovered by the authorities are not owned by Padilla and the police possibly planted it to arrest the suspect.
“Tungkol naman sa granada, nakakalungkot pong sabihin, pero ito po ay planted,” Fortun said in an interview.
“This is just an opinion, but for now, yun lang po yung masasabi naming abogado na hindi po si Arnold Padilla ang may-ari ng mga granadang ito,” he added.

Meanwhile, Padilla’s live-in-partner Glocel Razon already appeared in Camp Bagong Diwa to give some support to his partner.
Aside from being infamous for frightening and harassing poor people, Padilla was also being monitored for his alleged involvement in illegal drugs. He was also the suspect in the murder of his sister who died of opening a gift box loaded with a bomb.
He’s expecting to undergo a drug test today.
