Baron Geisler shares jail photos of inmate getting a tattoo of actor’s name
While he can get into fights and make enemies outside, troubled actor Baron Geisler seems to have made friends inside jail. So much so that an inmate had the actor’s name tattooed on his arm.
In a recent series of photos posted on Geisler’s Facebook account, a jail inmate is seen sporting the name “Baron G” on his arm. Geisler is currently detained at the Kamuning Police Station in Quezon City.
The particular post below is captioned, “Willing Wildon. Ako ay isang biktima” (…I am a victim). It carried the hashtag “#kasoatbuboganginabotko.”
The exact same photo can also be seen on Geisler’s Instagram account.
The actual inking of the tattoo, which involved a few more fellow inmates, was also uploaded in the actor’s Facebook page. Geisler’s name was seen being designed by a tattoo artist inside the prison cell.
Geisler has uploaded 18 photos in total. His overall post had the caption “Insanity~Humanity.”
As the photos were posted on Facebook, attention of the public was caught, including that of Geisler’s former cage opponent, indie actor Kiko Matos.
In a comment on one of Geisler’s posts, Matos said, “Anong station yan? Bibisitahin kita” (What station is that? I will visit you), which prompted a few reactions from netizens.
Prior to Matos’ comment, Geisler threw in a statement that said “Couple more days. Saya (Happy),” which could indicate that he would stay a few days more under detention.
Was Geisler allowed to use a cell phone inside the cell?
Incidentally, taking from the nature of the photos, it appears that the shots were taken inside the prison cell. As a rule, inmates are not allowed to use communication devices inside their cells, as such may be used for strategizing plans to escape, smuggle contraband, or start an illegal business, among others.
With this, did Geisler violate any rule on the use of mobile phones while under detention, or was he allowed to have one inside his jail cell?
Jail guard SP01 Virgilio Maboloc, in a phone call with Inquirer.net this morning, said that inmates are not allowed to have phones inside their cells. However, inmates are allowed to use phones and/or cell phones during visiting hours. Seemingly unaware of Geisler’s jail cell tattoo posts, the officer said they will look into the said posts of the actor.
Geisler currently faces charges of unjust vexation and alarm and scandal. JB
