More details emerging today about the identity of those fans involved in the alleged sexual assault of a LSU fan on Bourbon Street following the BCS Championship game. The incident, which was all caught on tape, shows the Bama fan exposing his genitals and rubbing them on the LSU fans face.
Deadspin.com first reported the identity of two of the individuals shown in the majority of the video. They identified 22-year-old Patrick Setterstrom and his girlfriend yesterday morning, and also said Setterstrom is the son of Mobile, Alabama's WKRG sports director Randy Patrick Setterstrom.
KATC called WKRG yesterday to ask if the station was aware of their possible connection to the video, but we were redirected to the corporate office who said they would be reporting on the incident. Last night, WKRG did post a story on their website, acknowledging their Sports Anchor's son was in the video. Patrick Setterstrom is not the person accused of sexually assaulting the LSU fan.
In addition, a facebook page has been created to seek the identity of all involved. Mary George from Arkansas started the page "Wanted: Bama Sexual Miscreants on the loose!" George tells WVUE that the victim and his family have reached out to her. She says the victim does have an attorney and plans to go to police today. They also expect an arrest today.
The identity of the man responsible for the alleged sexual assault has still not been identified.
New Orleans police have already told us they aren't investigating any more if the victim stays quiet. Now we've learned the New Orleans district attorney won't press charges if police don't provide a suspect. The district attorney does have the option of pressing charges even if the victim doesn't come forward, but a spokesperson says they won't be investigating unless police bring them information.
