Alabama man in post-BCS video bonds out of jail

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - An Alabama man accused of committing sexual battery on an unconscious LSU fan after the BCS championship football game that was caught on video that went viral is out of jail.

Court officials say 32-year-old Brian Downing of Smiths Station posted a $10,000 bond Friday afternoon and was released.

Downing surrendered to New Orleans police on Thursday night. He was booked on charges of sexual battery and obscenity.

The video is believed to have been taken at a fast-food restaurant after Alabama defeated the LSU Tigers on Jan. 9. A man clad in Crimson Tide attire appears to be performing a simulated sex act on the LSU fan.

Downing's attorney declined to comment or have his client speak about what happened.
