A Houston area man is facing charges after allegedly slapping a 14-year-old in Tiger Stadium during the Texas A&M versus LSU game on Saturday.
According to the probable cause report, Brandon Scott became irate when a group of teens tried to talk to him and he began cursing.
As one of the teens stood up to take his picture, Scott allegedly jumped up from his seat and “slapped the juvenile victim across the face with an open hand, leaving a red mark on his left cheek” and surrounding area.
Officers noted that when they talked to Scott, he was very intoxicated.
Arrest documents said Scott had “extremely slurred speech, altered gait and a very strong smell of alcohol on his breath,” while an officer was interviewing him. A witness told law enforcement Scott was sitting, and then he jumped from his seat and lunged to hit the teenager.
Scott was charged with simple battery and disturbing the peace/language. He has since posted a $2,000 bond and was released on Saturday night.
