Actor Baron Geisler was arrested by police after he allegedly went amuck and threatened to kill his brother-in-law in Angeles City, Pampanga yesterday afternoon.
Police said that Geisler, whose real name is Baron Frederick von Geisler, 35, was arrested by responding personnel of Angeles City Police Station (PS)-3 after a complaint from his brother-in-law, Michael Robin Stone Morales, a businessman.
A police report said Geisler, armed with a kitchen knife, went on a frenzy and started kicking the gate of Morales’ house in Barangay Pulung Maragul, Angeles City around 3:30 p.m.
Police said Morales then called for help which resulted in the arrest of Geisler.
Geisler was charged with numerous complaints including grave threats, alarm and scandal, and violation of Batas Pambansa Bilang 6 or illegal possession of deadly weapon, police said.
He was jailed at the Angeles City Police detention facility.
Social media war
The arrest came two days after Geisler posted Saturday on his Instagram account a picture of himself bloodied and his face bruised.
Geisler claimed that he was mauled by Morales in his house also in Angeles City, Pampanga due to financial matters.
“What to do? Break in and bugbog by family. Wow. Still forgive them. Pera pera na lang ‘pag ’ala na si mama (What to do? Break in and mauled by family. Wow. Still forgive them. Only money matters now that mom is already gone,),” Geisler captioned the photo, which has already been removed. Geisler’s mother died of cancer in January 2017.
On the same day, Morales refuted Geisler’s claims in a Facebook live as he accused the actor of barging into their house while being drunk, and acting rude on his wife and daughter before the incident.
What pushed him to his limits, Morales said, was when Geisler called his daughter and talked about “nasty” things, which led to the confrontation and the fistfight.
