Kapuso actor Migo Adecer took to Instagram to issue a statement of apology following his involvement in a hit-and-run incident.
After his temporary release, he finally broke his silence by posting an image on Instagram.
“First of all, I would like to apologize to all the persons who had been adversely affected by this incident,” Adecer said.
“I have apologized to the police authorities and have explained to them that disobeying them was not my intention at all,” he added.
The “StarStruck” winner said that his actions on the night of the incident was “just a product of mixed confusion on my part due to that situation which I have never experienced before.”
He thanked the MMDA officials for forgiving him.
Adecer also explained the reason why he decided not to entertain any interviews after the accident saying that he is begging “for your understanding for me to let my emotions settle first.”
The GMA Artist Center has also previously said that they will be shouldering the medical expenses of the two victims.
Adecer ran over two Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) employees, who were identified as Rogelio Castillano and Michelle Papin, due to driving under the influence.
The actor did not surrender right away. He, instead, engaged in a police chase along J.P. Rizal in Makati after the incident.
The 19-year-old actor’s car also hit a police mobile when he reversed his vehicle while refusing to go with the authorities.
When the police apprehended Adecer, a fake driver’s license was recovered from him.
He was charged with reckless imprudence resulting to serious physical injuries and damage to government property, as well as disobedience to person in authority.
