MANILA, Philippines — A Chinese woman was arrested after rudely throwing taho (soy pudding) at a policeman assigned at the Metro Rail Transit line 3 (MRT-3) Boni station in Mandaluyong City on Saturday morning.
The police identified the woman as Jiale Zhang, 23.
According to a Facebook post by netizen Pau Mesiasv and immediately went trending, the woman threw her ‘taho’ at Police Officer 1 William Cristobal after she was stopped from entering the station.
“Sinita ka dhil bawal n mga DRINKS or any form of liquid sa MRT. Isa kang dayuhan mam, hindi ka mrunong rumespeto sna mahuli ka at ikulong,” Mesias said on her post.
On a series of photos from the Facebook post, Cristobal was shown receiving a mess of taho all over his uniform, and on the MRT-3 rail and the beep card-machine entrance, while Zhang stood in front, looking agitated after her hindrance to ride because of her soy pudding.
The MRT-3 management earlier disallowed commuters from bringing inside the station and trains bottled water and other liquids as directed by the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO).
NCRPO director Guillermo Eleazar said said he is still waiting for the incident report before possible complaints for disobedience or unjust vexation could be filed against the woman.
The Chinese woman was brought to a police community precinct in Mandaluyong City following the incident.
