UPDATE: The man featured on cellphone video inside the Bourbon Street Krystal burger and wanted as a person of interest in a sexual battery of a passed out LSU fan could be Brian Downing, according to Russell County, Alabama Sheriff Heath Taylor.

As of 3 p.m. Thursday, Sheriff Taylor says Downing is currently en route to New Orleans with his family and attorney to meet with New Orleans Police sex crimes investigators. The Sheriff says he ordered Downing to travel to New Orleans immediately upon learning of his appearance in a viral video which features a man putting his genitals on the neck of a sleeping man in LSU attire at the crowded Bourbon Street restaurant presumably after the BCS Championship game between Alabama and LSU in the Dome January 9th.

Sheriff Taylor also says Downing is his 2nd cousin.

Wednesday, the NOPD said they were seeking a person of interest in the sex assault.

New Orleans Police want to speak with the Alabama Crimson Tide fan seen exposing himself in a viral video. It could lead to sexual battery charges.

The video from the Bourbon Street Krystal Burger has been a viral bombshell, but now it’s officially got the NOPD looking for help in finding the flashing, Crimson Tide fan who is considered a ‘person of interest in a sexual battery.’

It started with a group of rowdy Alabama fans placing food on and fingers in the ear and nose of a passed out LSU fan, presumably after the BCS Championship game between the two schools at the Mercedez-Benz Superdome.

But it goes from crude to lewd when one man unzips his pants, exposes himself and puts his genitals on the sleeping Tiger fan.
