Kabago-bago basagulero! Ang Probinsyano rep punches waiter in Legazpi resto
A neophyte party-list lawmaker is already the subject of controversy ahead of the start of the 18th Congress on July 22.
Politiko learned that Ang Probinsyano party-list Rep. Alfred Delos Santos punched a waiter at Biggs Diner in Legazpi City, Albay on July 7.
A closed circuit television (CCTV) footage obtained by Politiko showed Delos Santos standing up from his seat to punch the waiter with his left hand.
The lawmaker was with three companions when the incident occurred.
A police blotter on the incident identified the waiter as Christian Kent Alejo, 20 years old.
A Politiko source said Alejo was advised not to file a police report because Delos Santos is a congressman.
The police blotter on the incident claimed Alejo “avoided” Delos Santos’ hand.
It was clear from the video, however, that Delos Santos’ fist landed on Alejo’s face that his cap was skewed.
