“I would like to apologize to the city of Manizales for the events which occurred. I made a mistake which I won’t commit again,” Duque comments in a video released by Manizales Metropolitan Police.

Duque, who is 90 centimeters tall, finds it difficult to take public transport. The problems haven arisen when he has drunk too much and has decided to take a taxi home, El Tiempo reports.
