According to a witness, “It was all part of the celebration in the street and some random girl kneeled down in front of him abruptly as he was turning around and he tripped over her because he didn’t see her.”

Another attendee caught the whole thing on video, showing Fallon falling as he was walking around with a bottle of Jaegermeister in his hand.
