NEW ORLEANS, LA (WTVM) - A Smith Stations man accused of sexually assaulting a passed-out LSU fan following the National Championship game was back in court.

Thirty-two-year old Brian Downing was arrested in January on obscenity and sexual battery allegations.

During a hearing Tuesday, the Orleans Parish prosecutor's office said they have not decided whether to formally charge Downing. When asked if there was probable cause in the case, officials said it was too early.

The video taken of him exposing himself in a Krystal's after Alabama won the National Championship in New Orleans went viral on the Internet and got tens of thousands of hits.

The judge at Tuesday's hearing did not set another date for the next hearing in this case.
