I apologize for not updating my post on the arrest of Jason Ivler. I was so caught up with the news about him that I forgot to update my post. Anyway, below is the update I have on the arrest.
Jason Ivler is the stepson of British senior economist Stephen Pollard of the Asian Development Bank and son of Marlene Aguilar, whose brother is famous folk singer, Freddie Aguilar. Ivler was once a teen actor in GMA-7’s TGIS and have tried his hand in singing rap songs. But he went out of the country to serve as a US soldier sent to Iraq.
In August 2004, Ivler was involved in a vehicular accident that left a presidential adviser dead. The car accident casualty was Nestor Ponce Jr., an adviser of President Arroyo. Ivler was charged with reckless imprudence resulting in homicide for Ponce’s death. He was out on bail when he was nabbed in Zamboanga City with two police escorts while trying to catch a ferry bound for Malaysia.
I don’t exactly know what happened to the case after this but considering it’s been years before another road rage involving this guy occurred and he’s out and about town, the case was probably dismissed.
Fast forward November 18, 2009, during a traffic altercation along Boni Serrano Avenue in Quezon City with Renato Ebarle, Jr., the son of assistant secretary Renato Ebarle, Sr., Ivler allegedly shot Ebarle, Jr. Ebarle died of 3 gunshot wounds in the body. Ivler hid for two months before the bloody arrest happened.
NBI agents raided Ivler’s house at No. 23 Hillside Drive in Blue Ridge A Subdivision at around 6 a.m. The house belongs to his mom, Marlene, and she allegedly hid him in the basement of the house. During the raid, Ivler shot at the raiding team of the NBI, wouding two of its agents. Meanwhile, Ivler sustained four gunshot wounds: the stomach, chest, shoulder, and leg and is being treated at the Quirino Memorial Medical Center. He is out of danger now. He will face charges after charges after what happened to the raid in his QC house.
Ivler’s mom, Marlene, on the other hand, was charged with harboring a known criminal and is out on bail. Her husband meanwhile might also be charged with the same case.
