- Billy Crawford was allegedly detained and slept at a Hong Kong police station for punching a guy who groped Coleen at a bar
- Billy denied the reports and said that there was only an altercation
- The incident happened last October 31 at a bar in Hong Kong
Billy Crawford was reportedly arrested in Hong Kong about a week ago after he allegedly punched a guy who groped his girlfriend, Coleen Garcia, at a bar.
During an interview, Billy was asked whether the rumors of his arrest in HK were true, and the host-actor vehemently denied the reports.
He made clarifications saying that he was merely invited for questioning and that he cooperated with Hong Kong authorities.
He admitted that there was an altercation between him and a guy but there was no physical fight whatsoever.
He also said that it was a good thing that the guy who groped Coleen, did the act in front of police and the latter saw the whole incident.
According to Billy, if he was arrested or detained, then he would have been deported to the U.S. and couldn’t have gone back to the Philippines.

He also said that Hong Kong police are very strict in a way that a person can be questioned even for slightest things, like a shouting incident on the streets.
According to Billy, he was merely trying to protect Coleen from the uncouth guy.
The incident happened at Hong Kong’s Harbour City last October 31, during a Halloween party.
Any guy would defend his girlfriend. Perhaps the husband of this mother of 14 children will do the same.
