Two councilors reportedly figured in a brawl inside the Bacolod City Government Center on Wednesday.

Councilor Jesus Claudio “Kalaw” Puentevella hit Councilor Dindo Ramos in the face while the Sangguniang Panlungsod was having a recess from its regular session.

The scuffle stemmed from a heated debate regarding the government’s proposed garbage collection contract with IPM Construction and Development Corp.

Ramos said he will file a complaint against “abusive” Puentevella before the Office of the Ombudsman.

Puentevella left the session hall following the incident.
