Tubid, Nabong fined and suspended after Spider-Man incident


The San Miguel Beermen’s Ronald Tubid and Kelly Nabong have been fined and suspended by the PBA for their part in the Spider-Man incident that marred Game Five of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals last May 10.

The league handed out the penalties after summoning the two players on Wednesday.

Tubid and Nabong both threw punches at the intruders who stormed the playing court with about three minutes left to play in Game Five. They will have to pay a hefty fine of PHP 75,000 each, and will also serve three-game suspensions.

That means they will not suit up for the Beermen in their first three games in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. They will not be present when San Miguel take on NorthPort (June 5), TNT (June 8), and Blackwater (June 14).

Aside from Tubid and Nabong, San Miguel assistant team manager Daniel Henares and Dr. Ramon Ibanez have also been penalized by the league. They will have to pay PHP 50,000 each and will serve a suspension of two games.

A man dressed as Spider-Man stormed the court late in Game Five, causing a major delay of game. The man, later be identified as Paolo Felizarta, collided with Beermen center June Mar Fajardo.

Tubid was seen punching Felizarta while the latter was being dragged from the court by event security.

Meanwhile, Nabong hit another court invader mistaken as Felizarta’s accomplice.

However, the involvement of Henares and Ibanes has yet to be known.
