The Alabama Crimson Tide # 1
football team celebrated a 29-0 victory over the LSU tigers in Baton Rouge last Saturday, but a Alabama fan family is now sad after a bar fighter left the Crimson Tide supporter dead.
Robert Bowers, 46, died in the hospital Tuesday after Saturday night at Ponchatoula Pub, located in Ponchatoula, La. Bowers had gone out to see Alabama taking on LSU at Tiger Stadium on Saturday night, his family told WRBZ. Bowers were knocked unconsciously before being transported to the North Oaks Medical Center in Hammond, La. The 46-year-old was then taken to University Hospital Reception where he died.
On Sunday, Bowers’s daughter, Lexy Bowers, launched a fundraiser campaign on Facebook to cover healthcare costs.
] Two Men, 27 year-old Azia Crockett and 24-year-old Ryan Anthony have been arrested and charged with crimes against death in connection with Bower’s death. The complete details of what led to the match have not been released, but Polischef Bry Layrisson told WRBZ that ” it did not see Bowers’s aggressor in the meeting.”
The Alabama fan’s family believes that his support for the Crimson Tide during the victory over the LSU motivated the match.
