“Boom-Boom” pays city fine

CEBU, Philippines - Boholano boxer Rey “Boom-Boom” Bautista has paid P1,000 to the Cebu City government to settle his obligation after he was charged in court for violating a city ordinance that prohibits urinating in public places.

Bautista was compelled to pay the fine after the Municipal Trial Court in Cities had sent him a subpoena directing him to submit his counter-affidavit on the case filed by the City Environmental Sanitation Enforcement Team headed by Grace Luardo.

The boxer was caught by CESET enforcer Roberto Menguito urinating beside the road at the North Reclamation Area, prompting him to apprehend Bautista and issued him a citation ticket for violating City Ordinance 1361 or the Anti-Littering Ordinance.

City Ordinance 1361 also penalizes spitting and throwing of cigarette butts or candy wrappers in public places. Luardo said Menguito was able to recognize Bautista because his is a boxing fan.

After Bautista failed to settle the case before CESET, Luardo had decided to file the case against the boxer in court.

 “Pag-ari niya sir, wala na man masuko si sir Boom-Boom. Na-busy lang kuno siya mao nga wala dayon niya ma-settle ang iyang kaso,” said Luardo. - (FREEMAN)
