The PBA has slapped San Miguel Beermen's Ronald Tubid and Kelly Nabong a three-game suspension and fined P75,000 each for their involvement during the "Spiderman" incident in Game 5 of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals. (0:35)

Ronald Tubid and Kelly Nabong were penalized for their involvement during the "Spider-Man" incident in Game 5 of the PBA Philippine Cup finals.

Both were summoned by PBA commissioner Willie Marcial on Wednesday and each got slapped with a hefty P75,000 fine. The league also suspended Tubid and Nabong for three games in the ongoing Commissioner's Cup.

With 3:08 remaining in the fourth period of Game 5, a costumed man, who was later identified as Paolo Felizarta, entered the court holding placards and bumped into June Mar Fajardo at center court.

Tubid was caught on camera sneaking in a punch on Felizarta while the latter was being escorted out of the court.

Meanwhile, witnesses claimed Nabong hit another man, later identified as Flemn John Lola, being escorted out by the bouncers. Lola was initially believed to be Felizarta's accomplice.

Beermen assistant team manager Daniel Henares and Dr. Ramon Ibanez were fined P50,000 each and suspended for two games.

The Beermen open their midseason campaign against NorthPort on June 5 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
