    Globalport import hit with P40,000 fine for elbow to Fajardo's face

    Feb 9, 2013

    GLOBALPORT import Justin Williams has been fined P40,000 for the flagrant foul 2 he committed on Petron rookie June Mar Fajardo during the two teams' PBA Commisisoner's Cup debut on Friday night.

    Williams appeared before Commissioner Chito Salud on Saturday and reiterated the stand he made shortly after his ejection in the third period of Globalport's 94-92 win over Petron, insisting that the elbow to Fajardo's face was no more than "incidental" contact.

    The athletic import also insisted that he was merely trying to clear space after grabbing the rebound, adding he wasn't out to hurt Fajardo.

    Still, Salud, after a review of the game tape and the talk with Williams, assessed the penalty on the import - which was twice the automatic P20,000 fine for a flagrant foul 2 under league rules.
