BACOLOD CITY – A foreigner identified at first only as “Green” got himself in jail after sniffing a woman’s hair, hitting a man with a bottle, and failing to pay for his spirits and deep-fried ruffled fat in a nightspot here.
Green, who was caught without any identification on him is detained at Police Station 4 for four charges, Police Corporal Jason Wong, said.
The station desk officer said “Green” identified himself as Harold Harrison Green, his country of origin, Norway.
Four articles landed Green in jail: intrigue against honor, alarm and scandal, physical injuries and failing to pay for his orders.
Josephine Bayot, one of the three complainants, told DNX that Green seemed to have “come out of nowhere,” sat down beside her, and sniffed her hair.”
“I did not mind at first because I was talking to some friends but late he grabbed hold of my hair and sniffed it some more,” she said.
It was 9 in the evening. The place: Unyot’s Place, a bar.
Then Green allegedly started talking about her “stinky vagina” that made her transfer to another table.
Events took a turn for the worse after that.
When Josephine’s co-workers in another table called Green out to stop disrespecting Filipinas. “We respect them,” one said.
Green got angry, she said, and grabbed a bottle of brandy, “Emperador Lughts,” the poluce blotter added, and brought it down on the head of Eli Zimmerman.
Zimmerman got a cut on his head, above the left ear.
Zimmerman, the police blotter said, “came to the rescue of another customer (Bayot) because of Norweigian national was sniffing Bayot and uttered profane statements to the woman customer.”
The fracas, however, was not the end of Green’s alleged crimes.
He also left according to the bar’s owner, Remedios Dayrit, an unpaid plate of chicharon bulaklak, a bottle of beer and a long neck of brandy. He also broke plates, glasses, and ashtrays. The foreigner spent his night at the custodial cell of the police station.
