Mayor Under Investigation After Allegedly Beating up Two Golfers

A mayor in the Philippines is being investigated for allegedly beating up a man and his 14-year-old son while golfing at a country club east of the capital of Manila, Agence France-Presse reported.

Nasser Pangandaman Jr., a town mayor and son of cabinet member Nasser Pangandaman, is being investigated after he, his brother and their armed bodyguards allegedly beat up the two golfers Friday after jumping ahead of them to tee off.

The Pinoy pugilists reportedly punched and kicked the father and son as their bodyguards pulled guns on them to prevent other people breaking up the fight, according to the AFP.

The golfers were allegedly beaten again when they went to the clubhouse to file a complaint. President Gloria Arroyo has ordered the justice department to investigate the incident, according to the AFP.
