CCTV cameras recorded the January 21 car chase between Elevado who is driving a Porsche Carrera4 sports car and the 20-year-old student driving a Toyota Innova AUV.
Security personnel of the nearby hotel also recounted how Elevado and his friend Florencio Bato allegedly beat up the student and his companion after the car chase.
