The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Special Action Unit has attempted to arrest vlogger Tim Sawyer over an arrest warrant issued against him.
A domestic violence complaint has been filed by his former partner model-actress China Roces in a family court in Trece Martires in Cavite.
The vlogger is facing charges in violation of Republic Act 9262 or the Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act.
The two became viral last year after one of their major fights was broadcast live on Facebook.
China was doing the live video telling their followers that Sawyer did not want to become transparent on his recent earnings.
She also accused the man of planning to leave her and their son “Baby Tim” for another woman.
China claimed that Sawyer already bought a new house and car to move out from their place.
“Kaya nawala video namin kasi nagtago siya. Sinolo niya bumili siya ng bahay, bumili siy ng kotse, kasi raw ready na siyang iwan kami ni Timothy,” China said during the live video.
Sawyer had repeatedly denied China’s claims saying that he had no plans of going solo.
