10:21 AM ET 05.06 | The Alabama man accused of committing sexual battery on an unconscious LSU fan after the BCS championship football game is being sued. Downing, 32, 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.

"the LSU fan suffered mental anguish, humiliation, embarrassment, anxiety and depression ... damage to reputation"

Sounds like a class action suit to me. All LSU fans most likely felt the same way after the game. this could get costly.

The fact that the LSU fan was smash mouthed drunk and passed out in a public place didn't bother the fan at all though!

He probably thought it was his sister....

Good! Sue him for everything he is worth. As much as I would love to publicly humiliate a Michigan fan or Steeler fan, I know right from wrong. That was just plain wrong.

Low class loser deserves every bit of the metaphorical reaming he's about to receive. Once in a while I appreciate the lawyers. Once in a while.

Unfortunately, he's got a family ... they get caught in the debris of his loserdom. Collateral damage. Shame.

Not to excuse the behavior of the Tide fan dropping his junk on the guy, but the LSU fan has to take some responsibility for drinking until he passed out. He could have spent the night in the drunk tank and the sex act might not have been simulated.

This is a weird thread with even weirder posts...

It is not wise to be passed out drunk in a public place anywhere in the world. Especially if one is not in the company of friends who'll watch over you. And yes, getting carted off to the hoosegow has a high probability (and there are jails many times worse than NO's).

As for "****" an unknown guy passed out drunk in a public place... Please. People. Any number of criminal charges should arise from such. If the perpetrator is only being hauled into civil court, he's getting off easier than he deserves. He could be facing prison time, being listed, wearing an ankle bracelet, having restrictions on where he can live and work, denied unchaperoned time with his own children, and more.

Whipping out one's gibbly bits and laying them upon another guy... Who on earth would do such a thing? Someone who's got issues, serious issues. Someone you'd think would win a Darwin award sooner rather than later... Or, so one may hope.

Yes, because no Bama fans ever do that.....yeah, right, LIAR! ; D

As a Bama fan this guy is a disgrace and deserves everything he gets. I wish the DA would go after him and he could spend a little time in the slammer getting the slammer.
