Alabama fan dead after bar fight with LSU fans


A postgame bar brawl has cost one fan his life.

A 46-year-old Alabama fan was beaten in Ponchatoula, La., early Sunday morning and died Tuesday after being placed on life support, according to The Advocate.

Robert Bowers got into a fight with Azia Crockett, 27, and Ryan Anthony, 24, who were charged with one count each of felony manslaughter and turned themselves in.

Bowers was found unconscious at the bar after a verbal argument turned physical over the LSU-Alabama showdown, Ponchatoula Police Chief Bry Layrisson said. Crockett and Anthony are LSU fans, Layrisson said.

“Anthony struck Bowers in the head, knocked him unconscious,” Layrisson said. “He went to the ground and Azia Crockett punched him multiple times, as well.”

Alabama cruised to a 29-0 victory over their rival.
