The Alabama fan who teabagged a drunken and basically apssed out LSU football fan at the Bourbon Street Krystal Burger after the 2012 BCS Championship game was sentenced on Thursday to spend two years of his life in prison. Imagine that frat boys, something so stupid can change your life in a heartbeat, so next time you drink, don;t be a idiot. According to NOLA.com: Brian Downing, 33, pleaded guilty last month to two obscenity counts and agreed to the deal, skirting a trial on his original charge of sexual battery, a possible 10-year sentence and registration as a sex offender. The sentence — basically a formality — was imposed by Criminal Court Judge Karen Herman. Herman called Downing a “bully,” adding: “You chose wisely to enter into this plea bargain. The actions that you took on Jan. 9 of this year were morally reprehensible, there’s no way around it.” The video which we won’t post went viral immediately after it happened, and it was just a matter of time before the culprit was brought to justice. The YouTube video spread across the internet, finally reaching Downing’s cousin, Russell County, Ala., Sheriff Heath Taylor, who called Downing’s father and encouraged him to turn himself over to the law. He was charged with sexual battery and obscenity, facing up to 10 years in prison and registration as a sex offender if convicted at trial. But last month, Downing reached an 11th-hour plea deal with prosecutors just before his trial was set to begin. He agreed to plead guilty to two counts of obscenity in exchange for a two-year sentence. He will not be required to register as a sex offender under the terms of the deal. His lawyers have said he could be out of prison in nine months. The victim — who is not being named by The Times-Picayune — has filed a lawsuit against Downing and the fast-food chain.
