MANILA – Royette Padilla, brother of actor Robin Padilla, was arrested on Saturday after shooting at the house of his neighbor in Clark Special Economic Zone in Pampanga.

Police said Padilla, a former actor, fired shots at the front door of the house of his neighbor, Evelyn Bernardo, along Pasak Street in Redwood Villas at around 6:40 p.m. last March 22.

Police said Padilla tried to barge into the house of the complainant before firing his 9 mm pistol.

Padilla refused to give a statement to the media.

Last Saturday's shooting incident was not the first time that Padilla had a run-in with the law. In 2009, he was accused of raping a minor.

He had also been sent to jail for allegedly beating up his wife. – report from Gracie Rutao, ABS-CBN News Pampanga
