BUFFALO, N.Y. — Authorities say charges are possible after an unruly fan fell from the third deck of Ralph Wilson Stadium and landed on another man during the Buffalo Bills’ game against the New York Jets.
The team says the man won’t be allowed back into the stadium.
Video shows the fan sliding down a handrail in a seated position Sunday before flipping backward and falling about 30 feet into the stands below.
Erie County sheriff’s spokeswoman Mary Murray says the fall is being investigated and charges may be filed. Police aren’t releasing the men’s names because of the investigation and aren’t commenting on their condition, citing privacy laws. A witness said both were conscious after the accident.
Bills President Russ Brandon says in a statement Monday that the fallen fan’s behavior was irresponsible.
