MANILA, Philippines -- Despite figuring in many controversies, actor Baron Geisler considers his arrest and the short time he spent in jail as the lowest point in his life.

Actor Baron Geisler in an interview on Wednesday on ANC's "Headstart."

"I felt like an animal na pinilit lang ikulong. Pakiramdam ko wala talaga akong freedom. Mahirap, ang hirap kapag helpless ka. I fel na ito 'yung lowest point ng buhay ko," Geisler told Karen Davila in an interview on Wednesday on ANC's "Headstart."

Geisler spent at least 14 hours in Quezon City Police District 5 jail after he figured in a scuffle with neighbor Ray dela Rosa last Friday.

But the actor admitted that his experience in jail also taught him a lot.
 
"Sa loob ng kulungan magandang lesson din kasi I stayed for more than 10 hours inside so ang dami. Nakapag-isip ako doon. 'I don't want to live here,  I don't want to stay here, ayaw kong makulong.' Napakabaho parang hindi mo alam kung sino ang kakampi mo, kakampi mo ba sila o nilalaro ka lang," Geisler said.

The actor said he also questioned himself on what he was actually doing there.

"Kaya noong dumating 'yung press, makikita sa footage nagmakaawa ako na huwag ie-ere kasi unang una ah patay ija-judge na ako ng tao di nila alam kung ano ba talaga ang nangyari. Nakakatuwa man sabihin pero totoo na I'm an easy target artista ako at nabahiran na ang pangalan ko. So may  gawin ako maganda man o pangit all eyes are on me and hindi pwedeng hindi talaga ako i-judge ng tao," he said.

In a previous interview, Geisler also claimed that he was physically abused while in jail as some sort of "initiation" -- an allegation denied by QCPD Station 5 Commander Supt. Virgilio Fabian.

But after all that happened, the actor said what’s important is that he and his neighbor have already reconciled.
