(SPOT.ph) Comedian and TV host Arnel Ignacio charged three cops with extortion yesterday after they demanded P100,000 from him on March 26 for supposedly driving a smuggled vehicle, reports ABS-CBN News.

Ignacio claimed PO3 Jose Levy Llagas, PO3 Neil Pono and PO1 Jose Lasala demanded the money because the license plate of his Porsche was not displayed. The comedian said the license plate was inside his car because the screws came loose after the Porsche was showcased in an exhibit. Ignacio added that he presented the documents showing the Porsche was registered under his name, but the three cops from the Philippine National Police Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG) still threatened to impound his car.

The policemen supposedly accompanied Ignacio to his house to get the money. According to Ignacio, Lagas, Pono, and Lasala are now denying the incident but Ignacio said they did not know his house was equipped with CCTV. While nobody saw the actual transaction of the money, Ignacio said a lot of people saw the three policemen accompany him to his house.

PNP-HPG spokesperson Superintendent Edwin Butacan told GMA News Online that the three policemen have been relieved from their duties, stripped of their firearms and restricted to the HPG quarters. Butacan added that they are preparing administrative charges against them, which might result in a three-month suspension.

    gobyerno natin ay parang stage 4 cancer na di na pwedeng gamutin, kahit na gaano katalino ang mamuno sa atin at kung di naman makikicooperate ang mga nasa baba, ganun din. kung titingnan nyo, pag may mga issue sa corruption o katiwalian, mapagobyerno man o tao ng gobyerno ang involve, mainit lang sa simula, mga sa senado puro papogian lang at paangasan sa english nila para matawag na matalino sila, pero wala rin resulta ang mga investigation nila, at kung walang mangyayari, ibabasura lang at papansinin na naman nila kung ano yung current issue na pwede na naman silang magpapogi, OPINION ko lang, kung hindi rin makikicooperate ang lahat ng ahensya ng gobyerno, di rin magiging successful si PNOY sa adhikain niyang linisin ang gobyerno. PERIOD...

    Suspension? wat da... Dapat tanggalin agad sa serbisyo tska ikulong kapag guilty. Ang hirap kasi dito sa Pinas walang proper justice system, napakadaling gumawa ng krimen kaya kaylngan pa gumastos ng pambayad sa hitman para lang maparusahan ang mga kawatan na to.

    I suggest those 'croco cops' redesign their uniform with a tone of green and with a reptilian skin pattern.

    Mabuhay ka Arnel. Although we are victims of extortion from all the fappables on a regular basis, this experience with these cops is certainly unacceptable. Hats off to the head of the Traffic Management Group for acting quickly. There is still a lot of cleaning up to do in your organization. There are still lot of kotong cops out there.

    @bad assrnYou are correct. As a seasoned driver in Metro Manila, it was only during Lacson's time na disiplinado ang MMDA and Police. Nowadays, iwasan mo lang ang mga bus, ikaw pa ang swerving. Kase may lagay sa LTO at MMDA ang mga bus companies kaya ang mga buses kahit more than sa 2 lanes allotted to them, kinukuha pa rin ang 3rd lane, okay lang sa MMDA.

    This is all but too common among our cops. Corrupt, undisciplined and generally useless. They wear their badges as way to oppress people and think nothing of the consequences of their actions. We have rapists, drug pushers, hold uppers, bank robbers among their ranks nothing surprises us anymore. In short to be a cop in the PH is to be a criminal period.
