Guam - Phil Taijeron, a major with the Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency, has issued a public apology for the incident in which he was involved last week at Untalan Middle School. He stormed into the school's office in Tiyan, yelled and used profane language, and allegedly threatened the lives of those around him. Witnesses told KUAM News they feared for their lives, leading Department of Education superintendent Jon Fernandez to personally look into the incident.

Taijeron wrote, "I have spent a lot of time over the past few days in prayer and reflecting on my actions. I have come to recognize I acted inappropriately," adding, "I beg for your forgiveness; from all who I offended at the school, the students, the clerks at the office, faculty, parents, and all in our community who had to read and hear of my disrespectful behavior. I also apologize to my family."

Taijeron's wife, Senator Mana Silva Taijeron, is seeking re-election to the Guam Legislature in this Tuesday's general election.
