MANILA (Updated, 5:21 p.m.) – Newspaper columnist Ramon Tulfo and actor Raymart Santiago reportedly engaged in a scuffle at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Sunday afternoon.
Police authorities are still investigating the incident as both parties denied that they started the fight.
In a radio report, Tulfo claimed he only tried to calm Santiago's wife, actress Claudine Barretto, who was berating a ground stewardess over a lost luggage.
He said he started taking shots using his mobile phone when Barretto allegedly shouted at the airline attendant and allegedly threatened to cause her removal from her job.

He said the fistfight ensued when Santiago allegedly tried to grab his phone. Santiago's group is allegedly composed of six to seven people.
But according to the couple, Barreto was complaining about their luggage which was lost during a flight from Aklan when they saw Tulfo taking videos of the incident.
Barreto said that when Santiago tried to confront the newspaper columnist, Tulfo allegedly punched her husband and their two companions.
The journalist also kicked her twice in the leg and shoved her in front of her terrified kids, Barretto said.
The actress denied that she was mad at the airline attendant. She said she badly needed the lost baggage as it was where she kept the medicines for her children.
Santiago, on the other hand, said he has no intention to harm the veteran journalist, as he was only protecting his wife.
Tulfo, for his part, said he will file charges against the Santiago couple and their companions. (Sunnex)
