TNT KaTropa guard Terrence Romeo was involved in yet another brawl today, July 12, this time outside a bar in Tomas Morato early this morning.
This brush of violence comes a week after his involvement in the controversial "basketbrawl" between Philippine national team Gilas Pilipinas and the Australia Boomers at the FIBA World Cup Asian qualifiers last July 2.

According to a report on "Umagang Kay Ganda", the bar brawl began when a group of fans asked Terrence for a picture. Video footage of the fight has since hit social media.
Terrence was detained briefly at Quezon City Police District Station 10 but was allowed to go home as authorities continue to investigate the incident. A few hours later, the Gilas star took to Twitter to clarify that he did not start the brawl.
He wrote, "I'm in my house right now. I'm not held up in any prison or station. No need to make a fuss. Watch the CCTV, I believe it's somewhere in social media right now. I didn't do anything. Let the video speak for itself."
He continued, "Anyway both camps are okay naman na."
It is of note that hours before the bar brawl, Terrence's team lost against San Miguel in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup quarterfinal match.
