IF you are wondering why ‘Spiderman’ was able to take part in a recent PBA Homecourt outreach program despite his infamous incident in Game Five of the Commissioner’s Cup finals, it is because the professional league has already dropped the case against him.
PBA commissioner Willie Marcial confirmed the league is no longer suing streaker Paolo Felizarta for alarm and scandal, and unjust vexation after Felizarta ran to the court wearing a Spiderman costume and collided with June Mar Fajardo in the process.
In fact, Marcial said he invited Felizarta to take part in one of the PBA’s outreach activities wherein players visit different barangays to make the league closer to the fans.
Incidentally, Felizarta was joined in the outreach program by San Miguel player Arwind Santos, who is at times called ‘Spiderman’ for his dunk in which he steps on the glass after executing a slam.
Marcial said Felizarta gamely wore his Spiderman costume during the visit which thrilled the fans during their visit in Barangays Pasong Tamo, Kasiyahan, and Winnie Castelo Welfare Complex.
“Ang saya ng mga bata,” Marcial proudly bared.
Marcial said Felizarta will be participating in more activities by the PBA.
