NEW ORLEANS - A state grand jury has indicted a University of Alabama fan on sexual battery and obscenity charges for assaulting a passed-out LSU fan at a Bourbon Street restaurant in January.

Brian Downing, 32, is expected to turn himself in tomorrow, according to a New Orleans newspaper.

A $50,000 bond has been set for his release.

Downing turned himself in to police after a video surfaced showing the assault on an unconscious LSU fan following the BCS championship game.

Downing's attorney, Michael Kennedy, in March declined to say whether his client admits being the man shown in the video.
