According to the Erie County Sheriff’s Office, A 29-year-old man was charged after he allegedly jumped a fence under the influence of alcohol and several drugs, and subsequently fell into a pit at the construction site of the new Buffalo Bills stadium.
According to Erie County Sheriff John Garcia, the man attempted to enter the Las Vegas Raiders vs. Buffalo Bills game and ended up in the wrong stadium prior to kickoff at 1 p.m. on Sunday. The authorities said that he went inside a portable restroom, covered himself in the human excreta, left, and leaped the 10-foot fence to get entry inside the construction site.
Via WIVB-TV, John Garcia: “When you’re taking LSD, cocaine and marijuana, you’re going to not read the signs. You’re not going to read anything. You wouldn’t be in a porta potty jumping inside it, covering yourself with human excrement, you wouldn’t be doing that. This is a very isolated issue. He scaled that fence right up, jump over the other side and next thing you know, he’s running toward the pit. By the time ECC security got behind him now this individual is falling, tumbling down into the pit. It happened so quickly, it’s a large site. You can’t have people every 6 feet. You never anticipate something like this to happen. We’re going to look at it and get better and work with our partners and give them some advice on getting better.”
The individual was initially arrested on the charges of criminal trespassing and later released on an appearance ticket after being taken to Erie County Medical Center, NY. Law enforcement officials report that the individual sustained only minor injuries in the fall, which lasted approximately 20 minutes.
