BATON ROUGE, La. — Baton Rouge police arrested and booked a 34-year-old South Carolina fan after he mooned fans at the LSU-South Carolina game Saturday night.

The Advocate reports police were called to section 409 of Tiger Stadium after fans complained about a man with his pants hanging below his waist, using vulgar language.

While police were escorting him down the stairs to question him, an affidavit says Charles Hattaway of Charleston, S.C., pulled his pants down and mooned the crowd.

Police booked Hattaway on one count of obscenity, a misdemeanor.

I thought flashing was acceptable behavior in Louisiana. I guess it's only a problem if someone complains.

First of all, LSU is in Baton

First of all, LSU is in Baton Rouge and not New Orleans.

Second, there are lots of kids (and plenty of adults) at LSU games who don't want to see a grown man's naked rear end.

@ bill cass

Good point.

I mean what kind of sicko gets some sort of twisted pleasure from exposing himself to little kids, families, college students and others?

not kid friendly

College football games are not kid friendly any more like they were when my dad used to take me to UGA games. Today, cursing, profanity, drunks, and profane T-shirts. Of course, these are the few which ruin it for those taking kids.

Seat Cushion

This is clearly a case of mistaken identity. The man apparently had a seat cushion with Spurrier's likeness on it glued to the back of his shorts.

It's good, that laws are

It's good, that laws are being enforced. There is some history, where an LSU fan was victimized (not at the stadium), and this business should never happen. If you can't handle your drink, you should pay the price. Good on the fans complaining, boooo on that fan.

Well, this is an obvious case

Well, this is an obvious case of a Gamecock fan trying to make a point when his team couldn't.
