Callanta ordered the authorities to serve the warrant of arrest at Carabuena's last known address in Capitol Homes, Quezon City.

Also included in the arrest warrant were the details of the bail. Robert Blair Carabuena was allowed to post bail amounting to Php 12,000 in accordance with the direct assault case filed against him.

Blair Carabuena,recruitment officer of Phlip Morris, was caught on video slapping and assaulting traffic constable Saturnino Fabros several times after the latter tried to apprehend Carabuena for a traffic violation. Blair Carabuena allegedly ignored the traffic stop signal at the corner of Capitol Drive and Tandang Sora Avenue in Quezon City last August 11.

MMDA Constable Saturnino Fabros pursue his charges against Carabuena despite Carabuena's public apology.

Prior to this warrant of arrest, the Philippine National Police (PNP) had earlier revoked the firearms license of Carabuena. Also the Land Transportation Office (LTO) cancelled the driver’s license of Carabuena.

I have a simple comment - The wheel of justice in the Philippines is so slow. Two government agencies, PNP and LTO, promptly revoked Carbuena's licenses but it took two (2) months for the court to issue the arrest warrant though the charges were filed immediately after the incident.

How was that possible?

The disease in our government is rapidly spreading.

You know what? If the MMDA officer didn't have the sympathy of the netizens, I bet you, the issuance of the arrest warrant could have been longer than two (2) months.
