Papi Sarr took to social media to express his sincere apology to the Adamson community after the incident that occurred early Wednesday.
At around 9:45 am, the 24-year-old Cameroonian — who was trying to make a comeback to the Soaring Falcons — received his dismissal letter from the school, according to reports.
Sarr decided to confront Adamson’s UAAP board member Fr. Aldrin Suan. It resulted in a physical encounter that saw the 6-foot-6 big man grab the priest by the neck, then try to stuff the letter into his shirt.
“I would like to apologize to you all for this unfortunate event,” Sarr’s post read.
“Those of you who know me personally know that it was not intentional.”
Sarr was arrested, and might face charges of unjust vexation and light threats.
Having spent the last seven years in Adamson, Sarr expressed his love for the community. Moreover, he admitted that he let his emotions get the best of him.
“I love this school and would not have spent seven years of my life here no matter what happened before. It is never my intention to be disrespectful to the priests, to my team, and to you all,” the post continued.
“Raising my voice due to emotion and throwing the letter that I received this morning was unsportsmanlike [SIC]. Again I’m sorry for the hurt my action has caused [everyone].”
Sarr will most likely be expelled by the school as a result of what transpired. He would have had a year of UAAP eligibility left.
