Arnell Ignacio Traumatized by ‘Extortion’ Incident
MANILA, Philippines – “Malaking-malaking trauma ang nangyari sa akin," comedian-host Arnell Ignacio told "Showbiz News Ngayon" on May 3.
Arnell alleged that three police officers from the PNP-HPG apprehended him while he was driving his Porsche on March 26 and asked him for money under the threat of having his car impounded. He came up with the money but, by early April, decided to file extortion charges against the officers involved.
Psychologist Dr. Randy Dellosa explains that Arnell’s case could be “something like [acute stress disorder] or post traumatic [stress] disorder. [Nandoon ‘yung nerbiyos. Nakalipas na ang panahon pero nandoon pa rin ang symptoms" he said.]
But according to the doctor, this can be cured “through sharing the story. Kailangan talaga ng counselling or therapy,” Dr. Dellosa said. “Isa ring makakatulong is medication [especially kung affected yung tulog o appetite niya].
