Bills fan who fell from upper deck lost job, banned from stadium, could face charges
Just in case you’re ever thinking about sliding down the railing in the upper deck at your favorite team’s stadium, remember that there might be consequences.
Rob Hopkins, the Buffalo Bills fan who fell over the railing of the 300 Level at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday and landed on a fan sitting below in the 200 Level, lost his job, has been banned from the stadium and could face criminal charges, per WKBW.
While Hopkins sustained a shoulder injury, the person he landed on complained of a head injury. The Bills announced on Monday that Hopkins would be banned from the stadium.
“The irresponsible behavior that occurred at yesterday’s game by the fan who fell from the upper deck is a violation of our Fan Code of Conduct and cannot, and will not, be tolerated. This individual will not be permitted back into Ralph Wilson Stadium.”
Hopkins worked for Eric Mower + Associates in Buffalo. They put out a statement saying Hopkins is no longer employed by them.
“EMA is very concerned about Sunday’s incident at the Buffalo Bills’ game and we are relieved that the injured were released from the hospital. Rob Hopkins is no longer employed by EMA.”
WKBW says Hopkins could face criminal charges, but they did not specify what the charges might be.
