Ty first made headlines during the May elections, when he suffered a broken nose and a swollen mouth after figuring in a brawl during a sortie in Barangay Fely, Mocanacon, Isabela in April.

According to a Philippine Star report, the fight erupted between supporters of then-reelectionist Mayor Lycelle Vicente and her opponent, trader Abdulwali Villanueva. – Rappler.com
