THE police have arrested an American national in the province of Zamboanga del Norte on charges of Republic Act 10586 (Anti-Drunk and Drugged Driving Act of 2013), the police reported Wednesday.

Zamboanga Peninsula police information officer Ariel Huesca identified the arrested American national as Jackie Leo Davis, 55, who is temporarily residing in the village of Poblacion, Salug, Zamboanga del Norte.

Chief Inspector Huesca said Davis is charged before the sala of Judge Nimfa Carreo-Padao, acting Judge of Municipal Court Trial in Cities base in Liloy-Tampilisan, Zamboanga Del Norte.


He said the Court has recommended a bail of P2,000 for Davis.

The case against Davis stemmed from his involvement in a vehicular accident last Sunday evening along national highway in the village of Baybay, Liloy Zamboanga Del Norte, he added.

Davis was found to be drunk when brought to the hospital and subjected to liquor test, Huesca said.

The case for violation of RA 10586 was filed Tuesday in Court against Davis. (Bong Garcia)
