Following this news, KAMI learned that the actor has been arrested yet again and that his bail was set at Php 36,000.
According to the report done by Philstar (authored by Ludy Bermudo), the Manila Police District-Warrant and Subpoena Section (MPD-WSS) reported that the actor was arrested after Presiding Judge Carmencita Lacandazo Logan of the Pasig Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 12 issued the arrest warrant.
The said warrant of arrest was filed against the actor after he violated Republic Act 9262 or the “Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004."
Back in October 2012, his former live-in partner's brother, Juan Alberto Carlotta, stood as a witness against the actor.
According to Juan, Matt and Johnelline had a heated argument which resulted in the latter falling down the stairs.
He then confronted Matt which eventually turned into a physical fight.
Juan even recounted that their fight escalated to the point that Matt allegedly threatened him with a knife.
