Jose Antonio Sanvicente is now free from charges after the Mandaluyong Regional Trial Court dismissed the charges filed by a security guard against him.
The complainant, security guard Christian Joseph Floralde reportedly agreed to settle with the camp of Sanvicente in exchange for an unknown amount of money.
The camp of the security guard defended the decision of the complainant.
“Nonetheless, we believe the parties arrived at a reasonable conclusion without any pressure or compulsion from anyone,” Floralde’s lawyer, Atty. Federico Biolena said.
It can be recalled that on June 5, 2023, Sanvicente went viral on social media after several CCTV footages captured the vehicle he was allegedly driving while ramming Floralde who was manning the traffic at an intersection in front of a mall in Mandaluyong City.
Sanvicente even became more popular due to the possible connection of his family to former PNP Officer-In-Charge P/Lt. Gen. Vicente Danao Jr. can be seen shaking hands with them.
Another photo of Danao while showing respect to the mother of Sanvicente went viral on social media and put his popularity as a tough policeman down the drain.
The case was also featured on the show of Senator Raffy Tulfo, but they decided to discontinue assisting Floralde because they already noticed that the security guard was not cooperating with them anymore.
As of writing, the camp of Sanvicente has yet to give any comment on the decision of the court.
