MMDA denies Inquirer.net report that Richard Gutierrez allegedly berated traffic officials
(SPOT.ph) The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has denied the Inquirer.net report citing Radyo Inquirer for stating that Richard Gutierrez allegedly berated traffic officials after his driver was caught overspeeding on Commonwealth Avenue today, according to PEP.ph and Bombo Radyo.
PEP.ph reports that Gutierrez’ home network GMA-7 told them that the MMDA has denied the allegations in an interview with 24 Oras. Meanwhile, Bombo Radyo has reported that the MMDA denied that Gutierrez supposedly cursed and pointed his finger at certain traffic officials. According to GMA News Online, an MMDA enforcer supposedly heard Gutierrez curse but the enforcer believes the actor was referring to the situation and not the person.
Gutierrez’ mother and talent manager Annabelle Rama also denied the allegations against her son. However, she told Inquirer.net that he did get annoyed when a traffic enforcer supposedly said he should be given a ticket so they can inform the media. "That’s when my son started talking. Chard found the comment unfair because he wasn’t the one driving the car."
Rama also told Inquirer.net, "We have no problem with the driver getting a speeding ticket. We just want traffic enforcers to treat us fairly." She added that the driver has been with them for over five years. "Things like this happen to drivers, we understand."
