Police nabs retired US soldier in Butuan

Arrested on March 11 was David William, 42, a retired American soldiers residing at Purok 4 in Barangay Ampayon here. William is now temporarily detained at the police station in Ampayon for further investigation.

SPO4 Jaime Baldueza, the city’s police station 4 investigator, said William who was allegedly drunk went inside the apartment of Romeo Maisog by breaking the door knob Monday night without any reason.

In his complaint, Maisog, also a resident of Ampayon, claimed that William, who was out of control, also destroyed the apartment’s cabinet and chairs.  

Not contented, according to Baldueza, William went to another house looking for his girlfriend, Gemma Matias, also a resident of the same barangay.  The police said Matias complained that William tried to harm her.

Baldueza said William was probably irked upon learning that Matias was chatting with an internet pal at an internet chat mate that evening. (Aleden C. Pantaleon, Jr./MindaNews)
