Brian Downing: Alleged Alabama Teabagger Pleads Not Guilty (w/ VIDEO)
On the evening of January 9, 2012, the Alabama Crimson Tide beat the LSU Tigers in the BCS National Championship Game. They beat them like a drum to the tune of 21-0. The game was so lopsided that LSU amassed a grand total of 92 yards in total offense, five first downs and didn't cross midfield until eight minutes remained in the game.

Many of you have probably already seen this video. If you indeed have, I recommend watching it again even if it's just to serve as a reminder to those of you with children to repeatedly warn your kids about the dangers of a) passing out shitfaced on Bourbon Street and b) doing anything remotely criminal in the presence of iPhones.
If you haven't seen this video, watch the whole thing but in particular, remain dialed in from about the 3:30 mark through the end of the video (NSFW warning makes sense right about here), for that is where we get to the trigger event for today's news involving fun little words like "arraignment" and "civil lawsuit":
The dude hanging brain atop the comatose Tiger fan is named Brian Downing, 32, of Smiths Station, Alabama. (Not to be confused with former California Angels catcher/left fielder Brian Downing, who is now 61 years old and presumably not a chronic teabagger.) Downing is a husband and the father of an eight-month-old son, who will now be able to watch his dad in all of his drunken glory forever thanks to the magic of YouTube!
