Herbie was a whiny, annoying pusher for Esteban's crime family in the 1994 movie Fresh.
He was portrayed by Víctor González.
He is a lazy and cowardly member of Esteban's syndicate, which often gets him the wrath of Esteban and Spike, another member. He treats no one with respect. We first see Herbie in the beginning of the movie, when Fresh is going to pick some drugs up to get paid. His working with women gets Fresh's scorn--"What's embarassing is all the work Esteban got, he got you working with the bitches, that's what's embarassing." When he comes in, Herbie insults Fresh, saying he's an "ugly maricon"—which means "faggot" in Latino.
He later brags about being God's gift to women, which gets him shut up by the women working in the counter. Herbie then talks about Fresh being in the place, only because Esteban is screwing his sister, Nicole. This enrages Fresh, who threatens to hurt Herbie if he keeps talking. Herbie responds, by calling him a "maricon" again, and threatens him back, which Fresh dares him to do. He is then shut up by the woman, who tells him he will not do a thing.
We then see him again, with Esteban, who calls him a "pussy" repeatedly. Herbie, after the brutal shooutout, then goes on to trash Esteban as well, blaming him for everything. This enrages Spike. He then drops Fresh off. And they drive upstate. He was just an unpleasant guy to be around.
