‘Wag sinungaling! Waiter punched by Ang Probinsyano’s Delos Santos disputes his account of incident
The waiter who was punched by Ang Probinsyano party-list Rep. Alfred Delos Santos has accused him of lying about the details surrounding the incident.
Christian Kent Alejo urged Delos Santos Friday (July 12) to tell the truth about the incident as he reiterated his demand for a public apology in an interview over dzMM radio.
“Pumunta siya dito, sir. Humihingi siya ng dispensa. Ang sabi ko, ‘Kung hihingi ka ng dispensa, mag-sorry ka sa taumbayan na may media. Sabihin mo kung ano ang totoo,'” the waiter said.
According to a police blotter entry, Delos Santos punched Alejo at the Biggs Diner in Albay on July 7 “without any apparent reason.”
The CCTV footage at Bigg’s Diner showed Delos Santos standing up from his seat to punch the waiter with his left hand.
Delos Santos, however, claimed he only touched the cap of the 20-year-old.
“Hindi naman po suntok ‘yung ginawa ko. Tinapik ko po ‘yung sumbrero niya para matapos na, umalis na siya,” the neophyte lawmaker said in an interview over dzBB radio.
Alejo denied he cursed Delos Santos, which supposedly made the lawmaker angry at him.
“Kitang-kita po sa camera… Paalis na po ako, tinawag niya po ako. Ang sabi niya sa akin, ‘Bakit ang sama mo makatingin?'” the waiter said.
“Ang sagot ko doon, ‘Di man po, sir,'” he added.
