In Orchard Park Town Court Thursday, 29 year old Robert Hopkins appeared with his defense attorney, Patrick Brown, to ask the judge for a jury trial.

Hopkins has been charged with Assault and Reckless Endangerment charges, both misdemeanors that carry a sentence of up to one year in jail.

The charges stem from an incident on November 17, 2013 when Hopkins fell from the 300 level of Ralph Wilson Stadium onto a fan seated in the 200 level during a Bills game. That fan was injured.

A jury trial is scheduled for June 11, 2014.
