Alabama students arrested after defacing midfield logo before rivalry game
Two Alabama students were arrested after they broke into Tiger Stadium the night before the Alabama-LSU game and defaced the “eye of the tiger” logo at midfield. ESPN's Marty Smith shared a photo of the damage on Twitter, but it was repaired before the game.
According to The Advocate, the two students, both 18, were arrested, then issued a summons and released. A photo emerged on Snapchat of one of the students laying down on the logo prior to their arrest.
Alabama beat LSU 10-0 Saturday to remain undefeated.
