BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The man who was severely injured when another man fell on him at a Bills game in November will testify in a trial scheduled for June, according to the victim’s lawyer.
Robert Hopkins, 29, fell on the man after Hopkins apparently slid down a railing at Ralph Wilson Stadium during a game. Hopkins fell from a railing on an upper level to a seating area below, landing on the victim.
The fall was caught on video.
The victim’s lawyer told News 4 that his client is currently being treated for head, neck and back injuries four to five times a week.
Hopkins is facing charges of second degree reckless endangerment and third degree assault. The trial is scheduled to begin on June 11.
Hopkins could be sentenced to a maximum of one year in jail for each of the two charges, though they may be served concurrently.
