With a little over three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of the crucial San Miguel-Ginebra clash, a man dressed as Spider-Man stormed the court.
The PBA will press charges against the man dressed as Spider-Man who disrupted Game 5 of the Philippine Cup Finals at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Friday night.
With a little over three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of the crucial San Miguel-Magnolia clash, a man dressed as Spider-Man stormed the court.
In doing so, he hit five-time MVP June Mar Fajardo.
The fan, who has not been identified yet, was taken by authorities to the nearest police precint together with two others.
“Spidey” says that he just wanted to “spread love” and had no intention to hurt. Still, it was a pretty baffling and bordeline stupid act that will merit consequences.
“Nasa presinto na yung tao. Pinapatanong ko sa legal namin kung anong klaseng kakasuhan,” PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial sid.
“Kakasuhan namin yung tao,” he added.
It was certainly an unprecented incident in the PBA but there’s cause for concern now over the security at the Araneta Coliseum.
The man apparently was seated in the lower box section before he found himself in the middle of the court, colliding with the PBA’s most important player.
“Kakausapin ko yung Araneta baka mamaya kung nandito pa sila or bukas na dagdagan yung security. Tatawagan ko rin si NCRPO General Eleazar kung pwede magdagdag ng pulis kasi ngayon lang nangyari to sa atin eh,” Marcial said.
“Yun ang gagawin ko, mamayang gabi o hanggang bukas ng umaga,” he added.
