Traffic was stalled in Yona as police were seen in a video circulating in social media subduing a 2018 senatorial candidate and former mayor in the middle of the Ylig Bay Bridge in Yona.
As Yona Mayor Jesse Blas sits behind bars, his predecessor, Ken Joe Ada, has now been seen in a viral video resisting officers.
Two videos circulating in social media show two police officers struggling to subdue and detain the former mayor in the middle of the road in Yona.
The video shows, a shirtless and shoeless Ada not complying with officers and refusing to place his hands behind back.
Ada appears to be shouting, however, the audio is incoherent. Meanwhile, the individuals who took the video question what Ada did to warrant him being detained.
In the second part of the video, Ada is seen detained and moved to the side of the road as GFD personnel surround Ada, appearing to evaluate him.
GFD Spokesman Kevin Reilly says at 9:25 a.m. Engine 9 and Medic 6 responded to Yona bridge for a male in his late 30s lying on the roadway. He was transported to the Guam Memorial Hospital.
This is not the first time the former mayor has had a run-in with the law. He was arrested in November of 2018 on suspicion of terrorizing. At the time, Ada told PNC that he was cyberbullied.
Ada was the mayor of Yona from 2013 to 2017 and unsuccessfully ran for senator under the Republican ticket in 2018.
