MMDA officer assaulted by a motorist, Youtube video draws half million views

An MMDA officer being assaulted by a motorist was caught on video and is drawing strong reactions from netizens since it was first posted by News5 on Youtube last Tuesday.

47-year-old Saturnino Fabros (Sonny Fabros), a single father of 6 working as a traffic enforcer of Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), was assaulted by a motorist, or should I say, an arrogant motorist identified as Robert Blair Carabuena, an Ateneo graduate who works as a Human Resource supervisor at Philip Morris Fortune Tobacco Company, Inc. (PMFTC, Inc.).

According to TV5's public service program "T3", where the video was first shown, the assault happened last Saturday, August 11, at Capitol Hills Drive corner Tandang Sora in Quezon City while Sonny Fabros was just doing his job as an MMDA Traffic Enforcer.

Robert Blair Carabuena mauled Fabros after he was stopped by the MMDA officer for a traffic violation.

News5's Youtube video of the assault, titled "T3 - Motorist mauls MMDA Enforcer", has become viral that it already has more than half a million views as of 4PM today, as netizens criticize Carabuena's arrogance and rudeness.

MMDA officer Sonny Fabros meanwhile is being lauded for not fighting back at Carabuena. He has been getting admirations and support from netizens, and for that, he is very thankful as shown on this photo.

While Fabros is most likely to be promoted by MMDA to Traffic Enforcer 2 position, Philip Morris on one hand is being urged by some to fire Carabuena from his job. -
