It appears that a neophyte Congressman from Bicol wants to steal some of Mayor Isko Moreno’s thunder!
Even for a a few minutes but unfortunately, not in awe-inspiring way like Mayor Moreno does in Manila.
This neophyte Congressman, a party-list representative of “Ang Probinsyano” earned his 5-minutes of fame on social media by punching, ironically a constituent of his party-list if you will, a “probinsyano” waiter of a restaurant in Legazpi City recently.
According to an news article published on the news website, “POLITIKO”, Rep. Alfred Delos Santos punched a waiter at Biggs Diner in Legazpi City, Albay on July 7.
A CCTV footage obtained by “POLITIKO” showed Delos Santos standing up from his seat and delivering a punch with his left to the waiter’s head ala Manny Pacquiao.
The neophyte Congressman was accompanied by three other companions when the punching incident occurred.
The police blotter of the punching incident revealed the identity of the waiter as 20-year old Christian Kent Alejo.
The popular news website “Politiko” revealed that Alejo was advised not to file a police report because the assailant was a Congressman.
However, Alejo ignored the advice and as they say, the rest is history.
The police blotter on the incident claimed Alejo “avoided” Delos Santos’ hand.
However, a review of the CCTv footage showed otherwise. Delos Santos’ jab at Alejo landed, causing his cap to make a 180-degree turn.

It was not clear what triggered the punching incident because as of this writing, there was no statement yet from the camp of the Ang Probinsyano representative commenting on the video.
