"Para akong holdaper o r@pist na pinicturan pa ako na may hawak na karatula na nakatagilid at nakaharap. Feeling ko sobrang laki ng kaso ko, binaba ko lang facemask ko para uminom pero hinuli agad ako ng walang warning at pinasakay agad ako sa mobile at pinaiwan 'yung bike ko sa park."
He appealed to those who arrested him as per News5 in the manner below:
"Wag kayong gahaman. Sana magtulungan tayo, hindi 'yung manggugulang ng tao dahil pandemic ngayon. At 'yung 1k na hiningi niyo sa akin, mahirap hanapin 'yan lalo na't walang-wala kami ngayon dahil sa pandemic. Pang bigas na rin 'yang 1k na 'yan."
