Portland Press-Herald picks up an AP story with a local angle:

A Maine man who was injured after police say he leaped from the upper deck at Long Island’s Jones Beach Theater has pleaded not guilty to reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct charges. Luke Duplessis was released without bail following his arraignment today 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.

Isn’t attending Phish shows the real crime here?
