Ariff Gonzales, who was nabbed by the police Friday after he allegedly held up at gunpoint a former employee of Rexle Sizzlers in Bacolod City , posted bail of P100,000 Saturday.
His elder brother, businessman and Bacolod mayoralty candidate Vladimir Gonzales, however, said that Ariff had to be rushed to the Pablo O. Torre Memorial Hospital after his arrest Friday and was still confined there as of last night, due to erratic blood sugar level and hypertension, and also had to undergo an electrocardiography examination to check his heart condition.
