Billy Crawford was arrested and detained at a police precinct at the Bonifacio Global City shortly after 4AM this morning, September 7, 2014. The BGC Police said Billy Crawford may face charges of malicious mischief. The incident is almost eerily the same incident as his It’s Showtime co-host Vhong Navarro early this year in BGC. This Billy Crawford incident occurred shortly after 4 a.m. at the Police Community Precinct 7 of the Bonifacio Global City (The Fort).
The incident allegedly first stemmed from when Billy Crawford accompanied by an unidentified woman asked for assistance from the Police Community Precinct 7 of the Bonifacio Global City. When Billy was told he would be brought to the police headquarters instead for further investigation of his complaint, he allegedly punched the desk officer for no apparent reason.
Billy Crawford then allegedly also punched and damaged the glass door of the police precinct, prompting the police to arrest him. Afterwards, apparently injured from punching the glass door, Billy Crawford was brought briefly to a nearby hospital for an examination.
Here is the summary in the vernacular of the report aired on GMA News TV’s “News TV Live” about this incident:
“Nakakulong ngayon sa Police Station 7 sa Fort Bonifacio Global City ang aktor at host na si Billy Joe Crawford. Batay sa initial investigation, dumating sa presinto si Crawford pasado 4AM kanina kasama ang isang babae para humingi ng tulong. Pero nang sabihin daw na ihahatid siya sa headquarters, bigla na lang umanong nagwala ang aktor at sinuntok ang desk officer. Bukod dito, sinuntok din umano ni Crawford ang glass door ng presinto kaya inaresto siya ng mga pulis. Bukod dito, sinuntok din umano ni Crawford ang glass door ng presinto kaya inaresto siya ng mga pulis. Dinala rin siya sa ospital para ipasuri. Dahil dito, nahaharap sa kasong malicious mischief si Crawford.”
Billy Crawford and girlfriend Coleen Garcia came from the much-ballyhooed Star Magic Ball held at the Shangri-La Hotel Makati.
