NBI nabs young actor over sex video


ARNO Fuchs a.k.a. actor Arno Morales (center) is confronted by his former girlfriend at the NBI headquarters following his arrest on Friday.

Another sex video, another storm-tossed pair.

A former talent of ABS-CBN was arrested at his Quezon City residence Friday morning for allegedly posting his sex video with his former girlfriend on YouTube.

Agents of the National Bureau of Investigation arrested 20-year-old Arno Fuchs of Blueridge, Quezon City, on a warrant issued by Pasig City Judge Cesar Sulit for alleged violation of the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act and the law on violence against women and children.

Speaking to reporters while in detention, Fuchs—also known as Arno Morales onscreen—confirmed that making that video was “our idea” but strongly denied leaking it on the Internet.

He said his Blackberry phone which contained a copy of the video got lost “during a party in January,” suggesting that whoever found that phone must be the culprit.

Later on Friday, in the presence of their respective family members, the former sweethearts had an emotional confrontation at the NBI.

The complainant, a 17-year-old college student, said Fuchs was her boyfriend for three years and that she broke up with him in January.

“He has no right to do this. We were together for so long. Why did he do this to me? I want him punished for what he did,” she later told reporters.

She said she was forced to quit her studies after being informed by the school management that it had received a copy of the video through e-mail.

The mail reached the school officials from her own e-mail address—which can be accessed using a password that she earlier shared with Fuchs, she said.

“I trusted him. Once, he had my cell phone which contained all my passwords. I didn’t care because we were together. He started making threats that he would expose everything after I refused to reconcile with him,” she said.

But Fuchs maintained: “Making the video was our idea. We talked about it, but my Blackberry phone got lost in an open party last January and it contained (the) video.”

Palmer Mallari, head of the NBI-Technical Investigation Division (TID), said Fuchs was placed under surveillance for weeks prior to Friday’s arrest.

The TID is the same NBI unit that worked on another sex-video case involving celebrities in 2009, the one showing model Hayden Kho and some female partners in show biz.

Palmeri said the arresting team, who had also secured a search warrant, seized a laptop and other gadgets from Fuchs which will be subject to scrutiny.

An initial investigation showed that “the video (uploaded) on YouTube was the same video found in his laptop. Possession of such footage is already a violation of the antivoyeurism law,” the official said.

Fuchs was introduced to show biz by ABS-CBN in 2007 as part of Star Magic Batch 15. The half-German actor starred in the now-defunct youth oriented TV show “Star Magic Presents: Abt Ur Luv” that year and later landed small roles in the movie “A Very Special Love (2008)” and “You Changed My Life” (2009).

According to a spokesperson for Star Magic, ABS-CBN’s talent management arm, Fuchs is no longer a talent of the network. “He’s been inactive in show biz for quite some time now, as far as I know,” Star Magic public relations head Thess Gubi told the Inquirer on Friday. 

However, a source said Fuchs is part of an upcoming Star Cinema production, a romantic-comedy titled “It Takes a Man and a Woman,” where he plays the younger brother of lead star Sarah Geronimo. With a report from Allan Policarpio, Entertainment

  • buttones

    The girl was fourteen and had a seventeen year old ‘boyfriend?’ OMG where were her parents? For the most part, this is another illustration of ‘actors’ and ‘actresses’ not exactly being the sharpest knives in the drawer… not all of course, but quite a few- lets hope they don’t end up in the Senate… Isn’t this statuary rape? pretty damning evidence as well I would have thought…

    • superpilipinas

     the usual alibi – ‘my cellphone was lost’. This sex-starved-maniac thinks people are stupid as he was.
    Jail him, put the full force of the law. Let him learn.

    Ikulong yan!

    Hanggang kaapu-apuhan ng batang yan nandyan na ang video na yan sira na ang career nya.

    Lahat ng actuation ng mga bata kasalanan ng mga magulang yan kulang sa subaybay akala kasi nila porke pinag-aral, binigyan ng luho at salapi ok na tuloy tuloy dapat ang subaybay at pangaral at mag set ng good example.

    Good family sabay sabay kumain lalo ng hapunan.  Sabay din dapat magsimba.   Mahirap na gawin ito lalo na sa panahong ito dahil sa fast pace ng buhay natin ngayon pero dapat gawin.

    Ang value formation ay hindi lahat maibibigay ng teachers, friends, film directors lalo ng mga bugaw este managers pala kaya dapat subaybay talaga tutok kumbaga.

    Rule number one: Do not video yourselves having sex; Rule number two: if you cannot help it, then video yourselves having sex but press delete right after; Rule number three: if you cannot follow rules 1&2, be prepared to show the world what you got underneath.

    The sad or funny thing about this is how the network’s showbiz talk shows will treat this.  They’ll invite the boy and girl to air their side.  There will be crying, denials, apologies, etc. While sad music plays in the background.  Before you know it the boy and girl will be famous.  Wait for it.  I wonder if they really do these things on purpose to generate any kind of publicity.  Let the circus begin.

  • blue_lights

    Hey, am I the only one who noticed that the girl is only 17? Why isn’t he being sued for statutory rape?

  • Guest

    What’s up with statutory rape? I’m sure that this was consensual with the exception that their tryst was posted on the internet. I think they call this “pa virgin effect.” You know Filipinas acting like the Virgin Mary outside, but you get to see how slutty they really are and when shiit hits the fan, they accuse you of rape.

    These new batches of actors and actresses without an iota of talent save for their pretty faces and famous connections and very much reliant on scandalous media exposures. Now send me a link to the youtube clip.
