Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 14) — The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) slapped San Miguel Beermen forward Arwind Santos with a ₱25,000 fine Wednesday.

The penalty included ₱20,000 for issuing statements detrimental to the league and ₱5,000 for incurring a Flagrant Foul Penalty One during the recent semifinals match between the Barangay Ginebra-San Miguel, according to the PBA website.

The Beermen bowed down to Ginebra in Game 3 where Santos claimed their opponents had extra 'shadows' which led to their loss.
