Actor Tony Labrusca is in hot water.
He is facing two counts of aggravated acts of lasciviousness and aggravated slight physical injuries after supposedly molesting a woman and choking a man at a party last January.
The unidentified female complainant, a friend of jeweler and businessman Drake Dustin Ibay who was a witness in the case, alleged Tony exposed her breast and forced her to sit on his lap at the party.
Tony also supposedly choked Ibay’s brother.
In a statement, the legal counsel of the complainants, Atty. Regie Tongol, said, “Mr. Labrusca being a public figure and a foreigner must learn not to be abusive of women. My clients hope that this case would encourage women and anyone who have been victims of abuses by public figures such as Mr. Labrusca whether sexual or otherwise to not be afraid to stand up and be heard.”
Tony is yet to issue a statement on the matter.
His lawyer, Atty. Joji Alonso, urged the public to refrain from casting judgment on the actor.
