PALAYAN CITY - The Nueva Ecija police have intensified the implementation of Republic Act 10586 or the Anti-Drunk and Drugged Driving Act of 2013 following the arrest of three men caught driving under the influence of liquor here on Monday night.

Police provincial head Col. Leon Victor Rosete identified those nabbed as Jeffrey Cabuang, 35, of Bgy. Bagong Buhay, Cabanatuan City; Manuel Cristobal, 30, of Bgy. Imelda Valley, third city; and Pablo Prado, 52, of Bgy. Singalat.

They were flagged down in separate instances by operatives manning a police checkpoint along the Nueva Ecija-Aurora Road in Bgy. Caimito for not wearing helmets.

Rosete said Cabuang who was driving a motorcycle tried to evade authorities after being flagged down but was pursued until he was cornered. He was later found to be reeking with alcohol.
