San Miguel Beermen import Troy Gillenwater was thrown out of the game during the 2:29 mark of the 2nd period of the team’s match against the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters for bumping the referee.

Gillenwater was initially whistled for a foul against Rain or Shine counterpart Reggie Johnson during a rebound play. The burly SMB import immediately ran towards the team bench after the call and bumped referee Rey Yante, who was going in the same direction, along the way.

SMB officials argued that the physical contact was inadvertent but league commissioner Willie Marcial clarified that hitting an official automatically warrants a disqualifying foul.

Gillenwater finished the game, and probably his PBA career, with 11 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 2 turnovers in 14 minutes of action.
