Hundreds of supporters of the actor turned politician rushed to his residence in Bacoor, Cavite on Thursday afternoon after learning the news about a looming arrest.

Reports said the warrant of arrest is ready and only needs the signature of Sandiganbayan justice Efren dela Cruz for issuance.

Revilla was 'saved by the bell' following notice from the Sandiganbayan Clerk of Court that the arrest warrant versus the lawmaker and 32 others accused in the pork barrel scam will not be released Thursday as their office was about to close.

The senator, who already packed his bag and is ready to go, expressed earlier this week willingness to voluntarily surrender.

In a press conference Thursday night inside his compound, he said he is going to prove his innocence. According to him, any detention facility will be fine.

Bong Revilla thanked his supporters and assured everyone that he will face the charges. The senator, who believes that the truth will come out, wore a shirt with print that read "The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do unto me?"
