Buffalo Bills fan faces arraignment after stadium fall

A football fan who slid down a stadium railing during a Buffalo Bills game and fell into the stands below is scheduled to answer criminal charges.

Rob Hopkins is to be arraigned in Orchard Park Town Court on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old faces misdemeanor charges of assault and reckless endangerment following the Nov. 17 fall, which was captured on video. Hopkins is seen sliding down a 300-level railing at Ralph Wilson Stadium and then toppling backward and falling about 30 feet into the 200 section. Authorities say he landed on another fan.

Both men were taken to a hospital and later released after treatment.
