Robin Padilla’s brother to face charges for alleged beating of wife

Former action star and Robin Padilla’s older brother Royette Padilla was arrested early morning of July 4, Monday on a resto bar at Angeles City, Pampanga for allegedly beating her wife, Jane Cheryl Padilla after celebrating their son’s birthday.

According to the reports, Clark Development Corp. (CDC) security personnel and Angeles City policemen arrested Padilla, 49 around 4am, 30 minutes after the incident while driving his Nissan Safari at Clark Freeport Zone’s main gate.

The arrest followed the complaint of Padilla’s wife Jane, 39 after the assault happened at around 2:00 to 2:20am inside the V8 resto bar when the actor got “…angry at me and started screaming… when I stood up to leave, he grabbed my arm and pushed me to a corner. He started punching me in the face until I fell. Royette continued to punch me even as I lay on the floor,” Jane said in her testimony stated in Filipino.

Reports of bomboradyo.com said that the management has to call the police to pacify Royette. Another report from philstar.com added that the authorities has to crashed the resto bar”s glass door during the commotion.

Though the cause of the battering remains vague, CDC personnel Rene Dela Cruz said in a radio interview of the same philstar report “gusto daw kunin ng babae [Jane] yung four-year old son nila sa loob na natutulog sa sala ng resto bar. Ayaw ibigay ni Royette.”

Padilla, now detained at Angeles City PNP station 4 denied the incident and claimed it was his wife who kicked a glass door that hit him.
This was not the first time Royette Padilla was caught for his offense. Prior to this case, a minor filed a complaint against Royette also at Angeles City, Pampanga for an alleged sexual assault.

The former actor has to face charges against the violation of the Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004 (Republic Act 9262).
