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.
“Spider-Man” has not been identified yet but he’s been arrested and the PBA will press charges.
It appears that San Miguel will consider filing separate charges as well following the incident that left star center June Mar Fajardo shaken up#PBA2019 #PBAFinals | @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/h6dz0c5wIV

“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.
