An intruder who dressed as Spider Man to interrupt Game 5 of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup finals basketball event at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Friday, with a sign urging people to vote, has been taken to jail.

In-arena security and police officers swiftly apprehended Felizarta, and also arrested two other men. 

According to ABS-CBS news, PBA commissioner Willie Marcial said the league will press charges.

Felizarta was taken to jail, and later explained his bizarre stunt as a means of spreading “love” before the 2019 Philippines Presidential Elections, which will be held on Monday May 13.


“I just want to send a message because it’s the elections,” he said. “I just want all of us to give love. That’s it. Nothing more.” 

He added: “My message is to love so I won’t do anything to hurt other people. I didn’t see him. Fajardo was the one who bumped to me.”

First red flag should have been a dude dressed in a spidey suit to a basketball game.  

Anyone who wears a superhero costume is usually a bit off.
