Buffalo, NY - New surveillance video has been released of the Buffalo Bills fan who fell from the upper deck of Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Robert Hopkins, of Buffalo, was found guilty Tuesday of third-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment.
Stadium surveillance video of the incident was shown to jurors during the trial.
It vividly shows Robert Hopkins sliding down the railing on the upper deck at a game and then falling to the level below.
He tumbled 20 to 25 feet and landed on Mark Bratcher, injuring the man's head, neck and back.
Hopkins was not seriously hurt. But after the incident he lost his job in advertising and public relations and was banned from the stadium.
Hopkins, 29, could face up to a year in jail when he is sentenced on September 11th.
