Batangas congressman’s son caught on video allegedly punching 66-year-old jeepney driver
The solon’s son says it was just an accident.
ABS-CBNNews.com reports that King George Leandro Antonio Collantes, the son of Batangas 3rd District Rep. Sonny Collantes, was caught on video allegedly mauling a 66-year-old jeepney driver in Pasig City on Tuesday (October 29).
The report explained that the incident happened after Collantes accused Orlando Garcia, the elderly driver, of cutting into his lane in the middle of San Rafael St. in Kapitolyo. The victim said in an interview that his 9-year-old grandson witnessed him being cursed and hit by Collantes several times. The video clip also showed the congressman’s son "repeatedly punching Garcia, who was inside his jeepney."
While Collantes refused to issue a statement about the incident, he claimed in the police blotter that he only hit Garcia's eye by accident after the driver grabbed his phone while he was using it.
