Wynne Arboleda Scandal Caught on Tape
You probably know by now that, last October 16 during a PBA game against Smart Gilas, Wynne Arboleda of the Burger King Whoppers attacked Alain Katigbac, a heckling fan with a front-row ticket. In case you haven’t seen the incident unfold, check out this online video.
Available on the internet thanks to the magic of online video! The PBA has suspended Arboleda for the rest of the season without pay, but now Katigbac wants the player banned for life. Aside from the numerous videos and news reports detailing the incident available on the web, there’s also an online petition asking Burger King to divert Arboleda’s salary to Typhoon victims.
Arboleda should have never rushed into the stands to beat up a fan (and his two flagrant fouls committed during the game are definitely uncalled for), but I wonder why Katgibac curled up into a ball as Arboleda tried punching him? He definitely can’t claim the moral higher ground, since he was the one who ticked Arboleda off, right? If you’re going to heckle someone, be prepared to back up your words!
