Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte has proven she is no different from her feisty father ‘The Punisher’ Rodrigo Duterte who was Davao’s disciplinarian for years.
In a demolition operation in Davao City, the lady mayor repeatedly punched the Sheriff of the Davao Regional Trial Court, Abe Andres.

In an interview with ABS-CBN's ANC, Duterte said she already sent the Sheriff to the hospital.
"I actually sent him to the hospital after the confrontation. I think that's sorry enough," Duterte said in the interview.
Duterte said the Sheriff refused to wait for her before pushing through with the demolition. She noted that she was asking for a two-hour extension to avoid riots.
Duterte refused to categorically apologize but has admitted that her act cannot be justified.
"I cannot justify what I did but I will stand by what I'm saying that I was asking him, for humanitarian reasons that you wait for me...so that no riot will happen," Duterte said in a televised interview.
The lady mayor said she's also ready for any charges.
"Fine. I heard they said they're gonna file contempt charges, that's not a problem with me," added Duterte.
