Luke Duplessis was released without bail following his arraignment Friday in Hempstead, N.Y. Dan Russo, a Long Island-based attorney for the 30-year-old Old Town, Maine, resident, disputed allegations that his client jumped, saying he accidentally fell.
Duplessis landed in a seating area about 25 feet below during intermission of an Aug. 18 concert by the jam-band Phish.
He was treated at a hospital for head injuries, but Russo said he is recovering. One spectator below reported a minor injury.
The following day, a fan attending a performance by The Swell Season jumped to his death at a show at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, Calif.
