Following some time on the news backburner, the incident involving an Alabama man allegedly performing a simulated sexual act on a LSU fan following the BCS championship game has now been brought back to the front.
The Associated Press reports that the LSU fan seen passed out in the viral video has decided to sue Brian Downing for allegedly committing sexual battery. The incident took place at a Krystal restaurant on Bourbon Street.
The video, about five minutes long, features several fans hazing, poking and taking pictures of the unconscious man. Then, one individual — supposedly Downing (pictured) — exposes himself and places his genitals on the unconscious fan before a restaurant employee steps in to disperse the crowd.
Downing later turned himself into authorities and was booked on charges of sexual battery and obscenity. The New Orleans district attorney has until June 20 to decide whether to prosecute Downing.
