Police Say Fan Was Drinking Before Georgia Dome Fall

During the Tennessee Volunteers and N.C. State Wolfpack game in Atlanta on Friday night, 20-year-old Isaac Grubb fell to his death as he fell over a nearly 3-foot railing and down to the lower concourse.

Grubb was cheering after a Tennessee touchdown when he fell to his death at approximately 8:23 p.m. ET.

Alcohol may have been involved. According to police officer Lt. Chad Hurston, Grubb began drinking at approximately 5 p.m. Witnesses said that they did not see Grubb purchase alcohol while he was inside the Georgia Dome Friday night. An autopsy will help determine whether alcohol played a major roll in Grubb's death.

An unidentified 34-year-old male from Fort Mill, S.C., was injured when Grubb landed on him, but his injuries were minor.
