MANILA - A man dressed in a Spider-man costume who interrupted Game 5 of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup finals has returned to jail, this time to give away free pizzas to detainees. 

The man, identified as Paolo Felizarta from Imus, Cavite, said he wanted to go back to Station 7 of the Quezon City Police District and give the detainees free pizza for treating him well. 

"Alam niyo naman nakulong ako. Babalikan lang natin 'yung inmates ko dun siyempre kasi dadalhan natin sila nang pizza," he said in a Facebook post. 


Felizarta entered the court during the final minutes of Game 5 of the PBA Philippine Cup Finals between San Miguel and Magnolia and accidentally collided with San Miguel star center June Mar Fajardo.

League Commissioner Willie Marcial said the PBA will press charges against the prankster. 

The PBA also fined Ronald Tubid and Kelly Nabong of San Miguel after the Spider-man incident. Tubid landed a punch on Felizarta, while Nabong was caught punching another man who was initially accused of being an accomplice.

Both were fined P75,000, and suspended for the first three games of the Commissioner's Cup.

San Miguel's assistant team manager, Daniel Henares, as well as Dr. Ramon Ibanez were fined P50,000 and suspended for two games.

The Beermen went on to beat the Magnolia Hotshots in seven games to win the PBA Philippine Cup for the fifth year in a row.
