Tubid, meanwhile, hit Felizarta with a cheap shot while security brought the court intruder to the back area of the Big Dome.

Felizarta was brought to the Quezon City Police District 7 where he spent a few nights before posting bail.

Daniel Henaes and Dr. Ramon Ibanez, who are also under San Miguel’s employment, were also each meted a P50,000 fine and two games suspension but their role in the commotion is unclear.
