Fernandez, a son of now late actor Rudy Fernandez and actress Alma Moreno, was apprehended Monday evening at a traffic stop in Angeles City after he drove through a checkpoint. It was reported that a kilo of marijuana was recovered inside his yellow Ford Mustang vehicle.
In his interview, Fernandez said he had no idea how the illegal substance got into his car but he admitted he was on his way to buy marijuana from a dealer. He also admitted to using marijuana to avoid cancer, the illness that caused the death of his late father.
“The marijuana is not yet in my possession. It was just about to be handed over to me by the dealers when the police suddenly showed up,” said Fernandez.
But despite what happened, his son, Grae Fernadez will still be proud of him. Grae is the eldest son of Mark Anthony with Melissa Garcia Fernandez.
