He has faced suspension from work and lost both his gun and driver's license. Now, road rage assailant Robert Blair Carabuena is facing police arrest.
The Metropolitan Trial Court Branch 42 has issued a warrant of arrest against Carabuena on Oct. 8, a court employee confirmed in a phone interview Thursday.
This, after the court found probable cause in the charges of direct assault filed against Carabuena for manhandling a traffic enforcer.
The case attracted national attention in August, after a video of Carabuena's attack against Metro Manila Development Authority traffic constable Saturnino Fabros spread online.
Fabros, who has been promoted to traffic constable II following the incident, said he only flagged Carabuena for making a wrong turn near Tandang Sora in Quezon City.
A remorseful Carabuena delivered a public apology at the MMDA office Aug. 28, where he asked that he be allowed to drive pending investigations and legal proceedings.
His request was unheeded, however, with the Land Transportation Office in September permanently revoking his driver's license.
Carabuena has also lost his right to carry firearms, with the Quezon City Police ordering him late September to surrender his gun.
The corporate executive also earlier faced suspension from Philip Morris and Fortune Tobacco Corp. amid public clamor for his permanent dismissal from work.
