NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The Alabama man accused of committing sexual battery on an unconscious LSU fan after the BCS championship football game is being sued.

The LSU fan filed a lawsuit Friday against Brian Downing of Smiths Station, Ala. Downing's lawyer declined comment.

The 32-year-old Downing was booked on charges of sexual battery and obscenity but the New Orleans district attorney has until June 20 to decide whether to prosecute.

A video that went viral on the Internet is believed to have been taken at a fast-food restaurant after Alabama defeated LSU on Jan. 9. A man clad in Crimson Tide attire appears to perform a simulated sex act on the LSU fan.
