PBA suspends Wynne Arboleda for hitting Smart-Gilas fan

Burger King Whoppers point guard Wynne Arboleda has been suspended by the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) without pay for the rest of the 2009-10 season for attacking a fan in last Friday’s game where BK was up against Smart-Gilas Pilipinas.

Arboleda admitted that he lost his temper after being heckled by Smart-Gilas fan Alain Katigbak who was seated at the special ringside section across the Whoppers’ bench. He later issued a public apology to Katigbak. Katigbak, for his part, said that he is ready to file a case of physical injuries against the Arboleda.
