Ateneo Blue Eagles basketball player John Apacible, who was caught drunk driving in a video, is out of the team for the rest of the UAAP eliminations due to public misconduct, according to team officials.

Apacible, 19, is suspended from UAAP games and practices after Ateneo confirmed it’s him in the viral video of a Quezon City road fracas.
