Orchard Park, N.Y. (WKBW) The Buffalo Bills fan who fell from the upper deck on to a man below at Ralph Wilson Stadium made his first court appearance today.

29-year-old Robert Hopkins has been charged with assault and reckless endangerment.

He pleaded not guilty in Orchard Park Town Court this afternoon and was released on his own recognizance.

His dramatic slide down the railing and his 30-foot fall onto a fan below was captured live on the network broadcast of the game against the Jets just over two weeks ago.
