MANILA, Philippines – Former Rain or Shine import Jamelle Cornley has been released from detention after posting bail.

Cornley was released Monday night from the Quezon City police headquarters in Camp Karingal.

The former Rain or Shine import was arrested last week after causing a ruckus at a hotel and assaulting a responding policeman. He was charged with resisting arrest and public scandal.

Cornley, however, claims he is the victim, after his three female companions at the hotel stole his wallet containing over $1,000.

Cornley was named the Best Import in the 2012 PBA Governors’ Cup, where he led the Elasto Painters to the first championship in franchise history. -- Report from ANC
