For his actions, Nowak has been suspended for an additional one game and has been fined $5,000. In addition, Chivas head coach Robin Fraser has been fined $500 for leaving his team's technical area and crossing the pitch.

He will serve the first game of his suspension April 28 when the Union host the San Jose Earthquakes; he will serve the additional game suspension issued by the Commissioner on May 5 when the Union travel to face Seattle Sounders FC.
