Governor's Office employee tasered, arrested at Adelup after terrorizing complaint; has prior record


By Eric Rosario


Governor's Office employee Emmanuel John Cruz Aguon was arrested Friday, March 26 following the report of terrorizing incidents that day and the previous Wednesday.


Prosecutor Rolland Wimberley stated in his magistrates report against Aguon that he is on pretrial release for 2019 crimes and is not supposed to possess any deadline weapons. "During the pat down, officers located a black folding knife," Mr. Wimberley stated to the court.


On September 3, 2019, Mr. Aguon was arrested for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.


"While he was here, I knew he worked under Bureau of Statistics and Plans," governor's communications director Krystal Paco-San Agustin said. BSP is a bureau of the governor's office that operates out of the Adelup complex.


It was an Adelup employee, who called police to the complex. Officers found the man arguing with other Adelup staff inside the BSP office, then asked him to step outside to be placed under arrest.


"The defendant popped his knuckles and stared intently at the officers but proceeded to the hallway," Wimberley's declaration of probable cause states. "As the officers attempted to place handcuffs on the defendant, the defendant moved his right hand away and placed iot by the wall. The defendant resisted and tensed up, refusing to comply. The officers announced and deployed a taser twice against the defendant, while the defendant refused to comply and clenched his fists to his chest."


Mr. Wimberley is seeking a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge against Mr. Aguon.


Ms. Paco-San Agustin is verifying when Mr. Aguon was hired, whether her office was aware of his 2019 arrest, and whether he has since been terminated from employment at Adelup.


The magistrates report in Aguon's 2019 case describes Aguon resisting arrest and taking a combative stance against police officers. "Both officers instructed defendant to place his arms behind his back and to stop resisting," the report by prosecutor Renaida San Nicolas in 2019 states. "Defendant refused and Officer Fabila then deployed his departmental issued taser and executed a single drive-stun to the left side of Emmanuel."
