PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial said Wednesday that the sanction came after talking with Romeo a day after the incident which occurred with 10:23 remaining in the fourth quarter of the PBA’s return trip to the emirate.

Replays showed that Romeo hit Paniamogan like he was making a header in football during an inbound play.

Referees slapped Romeo with a Flagrant Foul 2 which meant an automatic ejection.

PBA rules also state that a player will pay the said amount for committing a Flagrant 2.

Meanwhile, Marcial is studying possible sanctions on Beermen big man Kelly Nabong, who was also tossed during the overseas affair.

Nabong got a second technical foul with 4:04 left in the third quarter when he slammed the ball in front of referee Nol Quillinguen.
