Arraignment was Wednesday for the man accused of punching another man at a concert at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center earlier this summer.
Craig Lawson, 34, pleaded not guilty to a second degree assault charge in Genesee County Court.
Lawson is accused of punching Jason McNeil while attending a Kid Rock concert July 5. McNeil was knocked unconscious and remains in a coma.
"You can't compare this case to another case. This was a one punch situation and the guy fell down and hit himself on the pavement," said defense attorney Michael Ranzenhofer.
In court, the judge ordered Lawson's bail raised to $10,000.
A fundraiser has been set up for McNeil, his wife and two daughters. Kid Rock donated $5,000 to that fundraiser.
