Geisler Released After Spending Night In Jail

MANILA, Philippines - Despite refuting reports that he had fallen off the wagon and returned to drinking, actor Baron Geisler had reportedly landed in jail anew.

According to radio reports and various online sources, he was arrested Friday night for allegedly attacking a neighbor while allegedly intoxicated.

As reports have it, an apparently drunk Geisler barged into a neighbor's variety store at around 7 p.m. on Friday.

The store's owner, identified as a certain Raymond Dela Rosa, had been with his wife and three-year-old kid when it happened.

Dela Rosa confronted Geisler, who had reportedly taken bread from the sari-sari store, and this agitated the actor.

He supposedly threw the bread on the floor and smashed a monobloc chair against the store's screen.

Furthermore, the actor was said to have punched Dela Rosa in front of his family, which allegedly traumatized the couple's young child.

Geisler and Dela Rosa apparently live at the same apartment row in Fairview, Quezon City.

Though Baron got detained at the Fairvew Police Station, the actor was eventually released at around 10:30 a.m. after dela Rosa decided to no longer press any charges.

Baron's older brother, Donnie, said that same morning the actor and the complainant talked with each other.

During the talk, Donnie said that Baron eventually apologized for what had happened.

"The thing was a misunderstanding. So on our side and ray's side, they just wanted to settle it and apologize and everything para finish na rin," Donnie told reporters.

Geisler's aunt, Tita Aida, however, clarified certain aspects of the reports with the Bulletin Entertainment in a phone interview.

She noted that she was still at work on Friday night when she received a call from her sister, Geisler's mom, that an incident was brewing in their area involving the actor.

Fearing for the safety of her sister, who was alone in the house then, as well as Geisler's, she called the barangay only to ask for assistance.

To their surprise, Geisler's was instead taken to the precinct, supposedly because there had already been a complaint filed.

Geisler's family has been advised by their lawyer to refrain from issuing any further statements for now.

Meanwhile, a very recent Bulletin Entertainment report, prior to this news, noted how the actor admitted to struggling to keep himself clean and sober.

"It's a conscious effort that I have to think about everyday, it's a continuous struggle like yesterday, I wanted to drink badly but buti na lang," he had said.

"I just tired also of this parang vicious cycle na pinagdaanan ko. But it's always nice to be brave enough to accept defeat and to do something about it," he had even said regarding his ongoing struggle to keep on the right path.

"I really wanna have a good life na," he had pointed out, sharing that his goals now include hopefully buying a house for him mother, who lost hers to a fire. (With a report from Jeffrey G. Damicog)
