MANILA—Former Adamson center Papi Sarr apologized to the said university's community for his alleged actions against athletic director Aldrin Suan.

In a Facebook post on Thursday night, the ex-Soaring Falcon said, "Dear classmates, friends, my teammates, coaches, priests, and the Adamson community, first, I would like to apologize to you all for this unfortunate incident."
Multiple reports earlier in the day said that the 24-year-old Sarr confronted Suan following the school's decision to dismiss him as a student-athlete.

Adamson Chronicle, the university's student publication, further detailed that the incident took place during the Soaring Falcons' tuneup game against an undisclosed opponent.

The said school paper further reported that Sarr, who apparently did not like the school's decision, grabbed Suan's neck in anger and even tried to place the crumpled dismissal letter into his shirt.

However, Sarr insisted, "Those of you who know me personally know that it was not intentional.... It is never my intention to be disrespectful to the priests, to my team, and to you all."

Sarr, though, conceded that he indeed something wrong.

"Raising my voice due to emotion and throwing the letter that I receive this morning was unsportsmanlike," he further said.

Sarr was detained at the MPD Station 5 and is facing unjust vexation and grave threat charges, while Suan reportedly appealed to Adamson's student affairs office for his expulsion.
