Brian Downing, the Alabama fan accused of “tea-bagging” an LSU fan at Krystal Burger in the French Quarter this past January, has withdrawn a plea of not guilty and entered a guilty plea for obscenity.

Because Downing pled guilty, the charges were reduced from sexual battery and obscenity to two charges of obscenity.

Downing must return to court on November 29 for sentencing.
