Thursday, August 23, 2012
MANILA -- Corporate executive Robert Blain Carabuena surrendered to Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Francis Tolentino Thursday and read his statement of apology to traffic enforcer Sonny Fabros, MMDA and the public.
Carabuena was caught on video berating and slapping Fabros in a middle of a traffic violation.
MMDA filed direct assault charges against Carabuena and his brother, Benjamin, on behalf of Fabros at the Office of the City Prosecutor in Quezon City. A preliminary hearing is set later Thursday.
Carabuena allegedly committed a traffic violation while traversing Capitol Hills Drive corner Tandang Sora in Quezon City on August 11. The MMDA said Fabros tried to apprehend Carabuena after he ignored the stop signal.
Philip Morris in a statement earlier said Carabuena suspended for three months pending investigation of his case.(Sunnex)
