Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 22) — The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) has cracked the whip on San Miguel Beermen players Ronald Tubid and Kelly Nabong for their role in the 'Spiderman' incident that happened in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup finals.

Tubid and Nabong have been suspended for three games and were ordered to pay a fine of ₱75,000 each.

The penalties were released on the league's website Wednesday.

A man dressed as Spiderman entered the hardcourt without permission and disrupted Game 5 of the finals. The man was later on identified as Paolo Felizarta, who collided with San Miguel big man June Mar Fajardo on center court.

Tubid was seen throwing a punch to Felizarta while the venue's security personnel were escorting him out of the court.

Nabong, meanwhile, was sanctioned for punching a man that was mistakenly identified as Felizarta's accomplice at the sideline.

San Miguel Assistant Team Manager Daniel Henares and Dr. Ramon Ibanez were also fined ₱50,000 each and suspended for two games.
