An SUV-riding motorist, allegedly a government employee, is in hot water after a video showing him punching a tricycle driver has gone viral recently.
The Facebook page “Trending TV” uploaded the video to get some form of justice for the aggrieved trike driver by public shaming his assailant.
Although it was not clear who was at fault that led to the punching incident, netizens agree that the SUV-riding motorist have no right to lay his hand on the trike driver.
In the video, a man can be seen alighting from the SUV to confront the tricycle driver.
A brief exchange of words followed but notably, the SUV-riding government employee talked the most.
He briefly turned his back away from the tricyle driver but came back to tell something to the trike driver and then came the sneaky punch, hitting the trike driver in the face.
The trike driver could only grit his teeth as the aggressor walked away and return to the SUV.
The woman who recorded the incident using her camera phone could only utter this words: “Grabe ka naman kuya!”
Another passenger of the SUV watched the incident from the comfort of the SUV, did nothing to pacify or de-escalate the tense situation.
Meanwhile, just as the SUV left, a policeman appeared at the end of the video and can be heard saying something but to whom? That I don’t know.
According to the woman, the assailant punched the trike driver twice but she said she managed to capture the second punch.
By the way, the road rage incident happened in Guiuan Eastern Samar. Read the original caption below.
“Pasikatin natin ang lalaking Ito! Grabe!!

Jayrain Isisaco remarked: “Yan ang pulis nanonood lng d umaksyon ang pananapak ng hayop na government employee kya tanga ang tawag sa pulis na yan sino b yan pasikatin sa fb”
Nathaniel Ainsley Chu noted something is missing in the story: “Bakit sia sinapak? Di kaya may ginawa tong tricycle kaya nagalit ng husto yung nasa kotse. Sana pag nag ppost sabihin ang kwento ng dalawang panig. Hinde pinapalabas na kawawa ang isang panig lamang.”
