MANILA, Philippines — The taxi driver seen being hit in a viral road altercation video filed a case against his attacker on Tuesday.

Virgilio Doctor, 52, went to the Quezon City Hall of Justice on Tuesday to file cases of unjust vexation, malicious mischief and slight physical injuries against his attacker, a woman who has been identified as Cherish Sharmaine Interior.

The charges were filed before the QC Prosecutor's Office.

Doctor filed the case with Ariel Inton, a lawyer and former Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board member. Inton is also president of the Lawyers for Commuters’ Safety and Protection.

He also filed complaints against Interior before the LTFRB and Quezon City Police District Station 3 last Monday.
