Oakland police said Friday it appears there was no criminal action or foul play in an incident in which a male fan fell about 30 feet from the third deck at the Oakland Raiders game at the O.co Coliseum Thursday night.
Sgt. Chris Bolton said a preliminary investigation indicates that at about 5:35 p.m. Thursday the male, whose name and age weren't disclosed, "either jumped over, or climbed across and fell from, a third deck wall in section 314 and onto the concourse below."
Bolton said emergency medical treatment was provided at the scene and the fan was transported to a local hospital with what appear to be non-life-threatening injuries.
Bolton said, "Although witness accounts are not entirely consistent, the actions of the individual appear to have been deliberate and not a result of criminal action or foul play."
He said there isn't a criminal investigation and no follow-up is being done in connection to a criminal case.
The Raiders said in a statement, "While we do not yet have any information beyond that which has been publicly reported, our thoughts and prayers are with this gentleman and his family and friends."
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
