Drug test for bus driver in Makati City road mishap

The driver of the bus that rammed 11 motorcycles, a car, and another bus in Makati City underwent a drug test today (September 4), Makati Police chief Colonel Oscar “Jack” Jacildo said.  “[W]e already requested for a medical exam and drug test to the driver as he has manifested abnormal behavior,” he said. When 29-year-old driver Marlon Nacaytona was apprehended, Jacildo said he was even smiling and seemed acting oddly. “It was as if he did not do anything wrong. He was even smiling when my men accosted him,” Jacildo said. Jacildo suspects that Nacaytona is either intoxicated or under the influence of illegal drugs when he rammed the vehicles. According to Jacildo, the suspect already hit the car and did not stop and continued to ram the vehicles waiting for the stop light to go green along Osmeña Highway around 9 a.m. Friday. This is why, he said, he is not buying the alibi of Nacaytona who claimed that the bus’ brakes failed. One of the injured individuals is a Coast Guard officer whose motorcycle got totally wrecked, the police chief said. “Responders said they rescued him under the bus as he got sandwiched. His vehicle was totally wrecked,” Jacildo said. On February 12, 2020, a jeepney driver who ran over students in Makati tested positive for drug use. He also claimed that his brakes also failed. One student died while seven others got injured......»»

PBA: Abueva needs to complete psychological tests to end suspension

Calvin Abueva getting his mind right is the only thing he needs to be reinstated in the PBA. In a rare interview following his now year-long suspension from the league, Abueva revealed the mystery requirement that's holding him back from the PBA. The Phoenix star just needs to complete his psychological tests in order to complete his reinstatement process. "Ngayon, sayang nga nagka-pandemiya, hindi na sunud-sunod yung session ko about sa psychology," Abueva said on the 2OT podcast of PBA broadcasters Magoo Marjon and Carlo Pamintuan. "Sa dalawang psych ko, naka-tulong sakin at naging kumportable ang buhay ko. Hinihintay ko na lang ang apat na session ko dito para maka-balik," he added. Earlier this week during the PSA Forum, Commissioner Willie Marcial gave a vague update on Abueva, saying the COVID-19 pandemic stalled the Beast's reinstatement. [Related: PBA: Phoenix's Calvin Abueva remains indefinitely suspended] However, the PBA chief didn't go into specifics on Abueva's actual requirements. For his part, Calvin reveals that he's completed the rest of what the PBA wants him to do in order to play again. "Actually tapos na, yung mag-hingi ng apology sa Board, sa PBA fans, at lalong-lalo na sa mga nasaktan ko," he said. "Yung mga community service na kailangan kong gawin [tapos na rin]. Yung pinapagawang community service sakin, dinoble ko pa, kasi opportunity ko rin sa buhay ko na maka-tulong din. Di naman ako mayaman, pero alam ko yung lugar ko. Ang pangatlo yung drug test na nakumpleto ko," Abueva added. Abueva has been indefinitely suspended since June 4, 2019. Calvin got his punishment after separate incidents in the 2019 Commissioner's Cup. In a matter of three days, Abueva made lewd gestures towards the girlfriend of then Blackwater rookie Ray Parks Jr. and clotheslined TNT import Terrence Jones.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
