Palusot pa more! Ang Probinsyano’s Delos Santos denies punching waiter: Tinapik ko lang sumbrero niya
Ang Probinsyano party-list Rep. Alfred Delos Santos insists he didn’t punch a waiter at a restaurant in Albay despite a closed circuit television (CCTV) showing the victim’s cap almost being knocked off because of the blow’s impact.
In an interview over dzBB radio Friday (July 12), Delos Santos claimed he only touched the cap of 20-year-old Christian Kent Alejo.
“Hindi naman po suntok ‘yung ginawa ko. Tinapik ko po ‘yung sumbrero niya para matapos na, umalis na siya,” the neophyte lawmaker said.
The CCTV footage of the July 7 incident at Bigg’s Diner showed Delos Santos standing up from his seat to punch the waiter with his left hand.
Delos Santos was with three companions when the incident occurred.
The lawmaker said he was irked at Alejo for haphazardly placing the placemat on their table. He also claimed that the waiter cursed him.
“Medyo mahina eh, pero narinig ko parang nagmura eh,” he said.
