Following the incident, league Commissioner Willie Marcial says that the PBA will press chargers over the unidentified man in the Spider-Man constume.
“Nasa presinto na yung tao. Pinapatanong ko sa legal namin kung anong klaseng kakasuhan,” Marcial said.
“Kakasuhan namin yung tao,” he added.
Meanwhile, June Mar Fajardo admitted to being shaken up but insists that he’s fine after getting hit unexpectedly.
Fajardo was one of the last players to leave the Araneta Coliseum following Game 5.
“Sana di na maulit. Delikado yung ginawa niya. Buti walang na-injury sa ginawa niya,” Fajardo said.
“Okay lang naman, masakit lang yung panga ko,” June Mar added.
