From hero to zero. 

Remember the guy who went viral for exacting revenge on a man who “touched” his friend’s wife inappropriately? Yes, he was the guy who rained punches on the fiend aboard a moving public utility jeepney as he clung outside it.  Well, he’s a hero no more after he got arrested – for snatching.

Jomar Alingod was detained on Wednesday after snatching the cellphone of a 54-year-old businesswoman.

According to the police officer who accosted Alingod in his hideout, the suspect resisted the arrest and prompted witnesses to interfere with the authorities. The police said that Alingod has been previously jailed for robbery.

Last month, Alingod’s previous heroic action – ironically initially believed to be a snatching incident – went viral on social media. Alingod’s bravery earned him an audience with Manila Mayor Isko Moreno as he then also cleared his name.

A man climbed onto the window of a running jeepney as he tried to punch another man inside the PUV along Taft Avenue, Manila at 6:30AM on Sunday.

'GRAND TAFT AUTO?'VIRAL: A man climbed onto the window of a running jeepney as he tried to punch another man inside the PUV along Taft Avenue, Manila at 6:30AM on Sunday. "Grand Taft Auto" emerged as a trending topic on Twitter after the video of the incident went viral on Monday. “Just so everybody knows, some dude was trying to get away from three other guys by hopping in the jeep. They eventually caught up and beat him as you can see in the ,” the uploader said. (Video courtesy of Ice Almocera)

Moreno said then that aggrieved people should seek the help of the police instead of taking the law into their own hands.

It seems Alingod will be taking those hands behind bars. – Ludy Bermundo
