It’s Showtime host and singer Billy Crawford is currently detained at a Taguig City police station following a row at a police precinct at the Bonifacio Global City past 4am Sunday.
According to ABS-CBN reports, Jonathan Aride of the Taguig Police Station 7 said Crawford arrived at the station supposedly to complain about a personal problem.
“May sinasabi siya pero hindi ko matandaan dahil nasa labas siya. Basta nagwawala siya doon dahil parang nakainom. Inaawat siya ng isang babae namin na pulis. Ayaw magpaawat kaya nauwi sa nabasag niya ‘yung salamin sa sliding door,” he said.
Reports also said that Crawford was with an unidentified woman who left after he was arrested.
Contrary to other news that the host-singer punched a police officer, Aride said that there was no physical contact.
“[Walang physical contact], medyo tulak tulak lang dahil hinaharangan nga ng mga tao ko para hindi niya mabasag ang salamin kaya lang malakas siya kaya nagkaroon siya ng pagkakataon na banggain ang salamin namin,” he added.
Crawford will be facing charges of malicious mischief, resisting arrest, direct assault and disobedience of agent of authority.
