Man who fell from upper deck banned from Ralph Wilson Stadium

Everything went right on the field Sunday for the Bills in their dominating 37-14 win over the Jets, but two men in the stands ended up in the hospital after one fell from the upper deck and landed on the other. The former suffered only a shoulder injury, according to the Associated Press, while the latter suffered a head injury.

Bills CEO Russ Brandon announced Monday that the falling fan has been banned from Ralph Wilson Stadium.

“The irresponsible behavior that occurred at yesterday’s game by the fan who fell from the upper deck is a violation of our Fan Code of Conduct and cannot, and will not, be tolerated,” Brandon said in the statement released by the team.

“This individual will not be permitted back into Ralph Wilson Stadium. The vast majority of our fans who attend Bills home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium do so in a responsible manner and we continue to work diligently to eliminate those individuals who violate our Fan Code of Conduct from game days at our stadium. We are cooperating with the Erie County Sheriff’s Office during their investigation of this incident and we want to extend our best wishes for a speedy recovery to the fan who was injured in the 200 level.”
