A man who claimed they got the wrong guy when security arrested him last year at Ralph Wilson Stadium has been acquitted of all charges after a trial in Orchard Park town court.

Gerald Parry, 37, of Depew, saw charges of criminal trespass, resisting arrest and misdemeanor assault dismissed in a decision released this week by Town Justice Edmund S. Brown Jr.

Parry and about two dozen co-workers from a Buffalo electronics company were on a company outing at the Oct. 18 game between the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars when he was arrested.

Parry said security guards mistook him for someone not with his group who made a rude remark to a woman, then handcuffed him and carried him out of the stands. Two of his co-workers testified that Parry was not disturbing anyone before his arrest.

Parry said he was beaten by security guards during his arrest and that it cost him $4,000 in legal fees to clear his name.
