Pinoy bartender fined $4k for criminal damage, assaulting officer

06 December 2019

A magistrate at Eastern Court ordered Sy's arrest after he failed to appear at a hearing of his case 

A 20-year-old Filipino male bartender against whom an arrest warrant was issued for failing to appear in an earlier hearing, has been fined a total of $4,000 for criminal damage and assaulting a police officer.

S.P. Saracanlao admitted his offenses on Dec 6 before Eastern Magistrate Veronica Heung, a month after failing to appear in a previous hearing supposedly for his plea-taking. A warrant for his arrest was issued by Magistrate Bina Chainrai at the time.
After his plea, Heung asked Saracanlao why he absconded in the last hearing, and he said he had no money and that he had written the court explaining his absence.

Asked if he had a job and how much he was earning, Saracanlao said he was working parttime as a bartender earning a total of $4,000 a month. He said he was born here and was living with his father and grandmother.

Heung imposed a $2,000 fine for each charge, and offset $100 of the penalty from his bail money.

Saracanlao asked if he could have a month to pay the fine because he had no money, and the magistrate agreed.

The prosecution said Saracanlao, who was drunk, was arrested at dawn on May 18 after he punched and cracked the glass backdoor of California Tower in Central when accosted by a guard for entering the building with a friend and causing nuisance.
At the Central Police Station, he turned emotional while being interviewed and angrily pointed his index finger at officers Cheung King-on and Kwok Hoi-ming. He then poked Cheung’s left eye with his finger.

Cheung was sent to Queen Mary Hospital where he was treated for tenderness in the left eye and discharged.
