New Orleans Police have arrested 32-year-old Brian Downing, charging him with sexual battery and obscenity after he identified himself as the Alabama fan seen “teabagging” a passed out LSU fan at the Krystal Burger on Bourbon Street after the BCS Championship game.

At around 10 p.m. Thursday, Downing – who is from Smiths Station, Alabama and was urged by his cousin, a Sheriff in Russell County, Alabama to turn himself into police – arrived in New Orleans and met with police and his attorney.

NOPD sex crimes detectives obtained a warrant for Downing’s arrest after they were alerted to the video and began an investigation on Sunday, January 15, one week after the BCS game.

The video shows Downing inside the restaurant exposing himself, then putting his genitals on an LSU fan who appears to be unconscious.
