He quits job after incident

Just two days after the fight, the man who was allegedly involved in the quarrel, Mr Aaron Jeremiejczyk resigned from his marketing position with The Exchange, a food and beverage establishment.

He handed in his resignation after he was suspended following an internal investigation into the incident between him and Miss Dawn Ho, according to a statement from Tadcaster Hospitality, the holding company of The Exchange.

A statement from the company said: "The alleged incident... occurred on his personal time, during his day off from work, and was in no way linked with Tadcaster Hospitality."

While Miss Ho has called him "an obnoxious guy" and netizens are deriding his behaviour, Mr Jeremiejczyk's friend says that this incident is a complete shock.

His friend, who did not want to be named, said: "What happened recently was totally out of character for Aaron. That was not the Aaron I know."

His friend, who has known Mr Jeremiejczyk for almost 15 years, also said: "He is a very genuine friend who is friendly and approachable."

He also added that he has never known Mr Jeremiejczyk to be a heavy drinker.

"He always hangs around with Singaporeans and he can even speak some Malay and Mandarin."

Attempts to reach Mr Jeremiejczyk on his mobile phone on Tuesday were unsuccessful.
