Marikina Police Files Charges Against Pranks Due to Fake Road Rage Scene
The Marikina Police has filed criminal raps against a group of pranksters after they made a fake road rage in Marikina.
According to the article, a gang of vloggers might face jail time after their “prank” about road rage generated alarm to the public. The two guys are seen in the video chasing a car that reportedly crashed with a person at Marikina River Park, which has received six million views on social media.
According to the footage, two men on motorcycles pursued the car, which appeared to be obstinate. They were able to properly halt the car after a few minutes. However, it sparked road rage and resulted in a shootout.
The man in the video appears to have taken a revolver from his vehicle and fired at one of his pursuers. Many internet users were persuaded by the video, and some even joined the police in searching the man in the vehicle.
However, it was eventually revealed that the video was only a joke and that the three people in it were colluding. The vloggers apologized and deleted the video, but it appeared that it was too late for them. Jonathan Esquillo, Joseph Josef, and Jonathan Tablante were identified as the culprits, and they are now facing a slew of charges.
According to the police, the three will be charged with breaching Article 154 of the RPC (unlawful use of means of publishing and unlawful remarks) in connection with R.A. Unjust Vexation; 10175 (Cybercrime Law); Art 155 (Alarm and Scandal); and 10175 (Cybercrime Law). The authorities appreciated the three suspects’ apologies but insisted that the law must still be followed so that other vloggers do not repeat the culprits’ actions.
