Alabama Fan Charged With Sexual Battery On Drunk LSU Fan

An Alabama football fan was arrested after New Orleans cops said he was video-taped allegedly sexually abusing a half-passed out LSU fan shortly after the recent BCS Championship game.

New Orleans police charged Brian Downing, 32, of Smiths Station, Ala. with sexual battery and obscenity for being recorded on a video tape putting his genitals and simulating a sexual act on a "heavily inebriated" man.

Downing turned himself in on Thursday after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

The four-minute video— which was first posted on an Alabama football fan site and went viral this week— was filmed outside a restaurant on Bourbon Street in New Orleans shortly after Alabama destroyed LSU, 21-0, for the national title.

Police said they began investigating the incident Jan. 15 after being told about the increasingly popular viral video.

Downing was fired from his job after he was identified in the video and released on a $10,000 bond.

They say people go a little crazy down in the French quarter, but I say this Downing guy is just nuts.
