Update:LSU Fan in Viral Video Files Lawsuit Against Alabama Man
The Alabama man accused of committing sexual battery on an unconscious LSU fan after the BCS championship football game is being sued.
The LSU fan filed a lawsuit Friday against Brian Downing of Smiths Station, Ala. Downing's lawyer declined comment.
The 32-year-old Downing was booked on charges of sexual battery and obscenity but the New Orleans district attorney has until June 20 to decide whether to prosecute.
A video that went viral on the Internet is believed to have been taken at a fast-food restaurant after Alabama defeated LSU on Jan. 9. A man clad in Crimson Tide attire appears to perform a simulated sex act on the LSU fan.
