MANILA, Philippines – The bigger they ‘grow’, the harder they fall.

Ana Marie Paglinawan, the woman who was caught on video abusing her position as acting chief of the National Police Commission-National Capital Region administration division, has been sacked by the top brass for her outrageous behavior.

“The Commission remains steadfast in preserving the integrity of NAPOLCOM and will always take appropriate action against anyone who may try to tarnish the image of the NAPOLCOM by committing acts inappropriate of a public official,” NAPOLCOM vice chairman and executive officer Eduardo Escueta told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Aside from the sacking, Escueta also ordered a probe into the incident to determine Paglinawan’s liabilities.

“We want to assure the public that the Commission shall not tolerate any wrongdoing committed by its officials and employees that may taint the good image of the NAPOLCOM,” he said.

In the video posted by village officer Mike Almanza on his Facebook, Paglinawan was caught on camera chastising two policemen who were responding to a disturbance call by residents of Justinville Subdivision, Bacoor, Cavite against her relative.

Aside from berating the two officers and questioning their presence in the area, Paglinawan can also be heard bragging about her connections and being an attorney and an official.

In one segment, she can be seen calling a “colonel” on the phone and asking for help.

After venting her ire on the police, Paglinawan was also recorded pushing Almanza’s wife and their one-year-old child before proceeding to take his cell phone and throw it away.
