Mayor Sara Duterte punches sheriff Abe Andres [video]

Mayor Sara Duterte of Davao City is now being dubbed as "The Puncher".

On Friday morning, July 1, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte was caught on video punching demolition sheriff Abe Andres of the Davao Regional Trial Court Branch 15.

She really hit the sheriff so hard, just like how Manny Pacquiao punches his boxing opponents.

Mayor Duterte got so mad at the sheriff after the latter pushed through with the demolition at Brgy. Kapitan Tomas Monteverde Sr., Sitio Soliman, Agdao District, Davao City, despite the mayor's request to defer the demolition for 2 hours because she's still giving away relief goods to the flash flood victims in the area.

Watch a video of how Mayor Duterte punched the sheriff:

Here's another video in another angle:

As seen on the video, Mayor Duterte asked first the sheriff to come near her before she punched him bigtime. You can also hear on the video the cheers from the people while Mayor Duterte was punching Sheriff Andres.

Just because of this punching incident, Mayor Duterte managed to trend worldwide on Twitter, peaking at #5, around 8PM tonight, July 1.

The incident also reached overseas, making headlines in various news websites around the world.


Sara Duterte is the first female to be elected Mayor in Davao City.

During the 2010 Elections, she won the mayoralty race with 372,576 votes versus former House Speaker Prospero Nograles which had 154,254 votes.

Sara actually succeeded her own father Rodrigo Duterte, a 6-termer Mayor, who now holds the Vice-Mayor position.

The father and daughter actually just switched positions. Sara was Rodrigo's Vice-Mayor during his last term as the city Mayor.
