Drunk Couple Refused to be Detained After Violating Curfew Rules Amid Community Quarantine

Law enforcement personnel may use the full extent of the law to ensure that people stay in their homes amid the community quarantine. That's what President Rodrigo Duterte said after his speech Live on National Television.

But still, there are disobedient ones that could be harmful to others, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic situation. This couple in the video started another issue as they refuse to abide by the law and now going viral on social media.

The two were drunk and decided to walk their way home after sobering up at a friend's house. But things went sideways after they were held by the authorities for violating the curfew and liquor ban that was announced earlier this week by the national government.

According to article 151, it is stated that resistance and disobedience to a person in authority (barangay captain) or his agents (barangay tanods) in the performance of his duties are punishable with arrest mayor and a fine not exceeding P500.

Should the person accosted starts to lay hands on the person in authority, he recommends to use Article 148, the provision of which can be used against any person or persons who use force or intimidation or seriously intimidate or resist any person in authority or any of his agents, while engaged in the performance of official duties.

Everyone wants this situation to stop, but in order to do that, everyone must follow the government's guidelines.
