His side: Please arrest me

Billy Crawford in an interview with DZMM said that it is his fault. He added that he did not physically hurt anyone. “It was my fault for actually being aggressive.”

He is thankful “it didn’t happen in a bar, it didn’t happen anywhere else. It happened in a precinct. The reason why is because I knew for a fact I needed to be in a controlled environment. So as I said, I really apologize to the officers if I said anything derogatory or anything else.”

“It’s an aggression. I’m just really exhausted. I’m stressed out by certain situations. We try to be the best we are. We are not perfect,” he told DZMM.

“That’s one of the reasons why I went to the prison and said, ‘Just please arrest me.’ I do not want to be drunk roaming around or making a fool out of myself which I am right now. That was it.”

“Maybe lessen the alcohol and act like a grown up. It’s really immature and it’s a shame for me,” Crawford said when asked if did he learn something from the incident.
