ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) _ A trial is set to begin for a Buffalo Bills fan who fell from an upper stadium level onto a spectator below.

Jury selection for the assault and reckless endangerment trial of Robert Hopkins is scheduled to get under way in Orchard Park Town Court Wednesday.

The 29-year-old has pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor counts.

His lawyer has said the incident was simply an accident.

Hopkins was charged in November after being caught on video sliding down a 300-level railing at Ralph Wilson Stadium during a game and toppling backward into the 200 section.
