Just minutes before kickoff, news broke through WNY Fire Alerts that a fan had illegally entered the construction area of the new Buffalo Bills stadium and proceeded to fall right into a deep hole. While the fan was eventually rescued, the circumstances surrounding the incident raised many questions…and eyebrows.

On Monday, the Erie County Sheriff’s Office provided the answers to the many questions the public had about how the fan ended up in the pit and why.

According to Sheriff’s, the 29-year-old unnamed fan confessed to being under the influence of cocaine, LSD, and marijuana at the time of the incident. Before hopping the fence, the man had entered a portable toilet, covered himself in the contents of the toilet, and proceeded to strip naked.

Unfortunately, the actions of the fan led him to fall approximately 30 feet into the pit where the future home of the Buffalo Bills will be. As a result of his shenanigans, the fan was charged with misdemeanor trespassing and issued an appearance ticket for Orchard Park Town Court. The fan was also transferred to Buffalo General Medical Center to receive treatment for multiple scratches that he sustained during the incident.

Thankfully, the individual involved was rescued. Unfortunately, he suffered multiple injuries and is now facing legal repercussions for his actions.

LOOK: The story behind every NFL team name

Stacker delved into the story behind every NFL football team name. Overall team records, also included, are reflective of NFL regular-season games. There are some football teams with well-known nicknames—the Jets, for instance, are often referred to as Gang Green—but we also divulge how some teams’ official names are sparingly used (the Jets’ neighbors, the Giants, are actually known as the New York Football Giants). Sometimes a team name can tell you a lot about local history: The Vikings of Minnesota draw upon the area’s strong ties to Scandinavia, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are dripping in local legend related to Florida’s pirate past.

Let’s kick off the countdown with the folks who earned their nickname by buying boxes of used team jerseys.
