REPORT: Alabama Fan Shoots Auburn Fan After Argument Over Whose Team Was Better
The Alabama Crimson Tide are 10-0, the Auburn Tigers are 8-2, and both teams are just ten days away from the 2017 Iron Bowl, with a spot in the College Football Playoff on the line.
It is always a heated matchup every single year and the fan bases are usually trash talking each other from the start of the season till they meet up in November.
Unfortunately, a recent argument between an Auburn and Alabama fan almost turned into murder.
“Mobile Police say an argument over college football led an Alabama fan to shoot an Auburn fan outside a motel in Mobile on Monday.
In an update sent to News 5, police say the two men were arguing outside the Extenda Suites Mobile location on the I-65 Service Road South around 7:23pm. The argument was over which team was better in the Iron Bowl rivalry, Alabama or Auburn.
The argument escalated, with the Alabama fan pulling out a firearm and shooting the Auburn fan in the thigh. The Alabama fan fled on foot, and as of Wednesday afternoon, is still on the loose.
The victim’s condition is still unknown at this time.”
Hopefully the Auburn fan survives and the Bama fan gets put away for a long time. Roll Tide right into prison.
