LSU student Dalton Guidry was hospitalized Saturday night and received four staples in his head after he was hit by a flying object in the student section during the game vs. Alabama, according to a Daily Reveille report.

“I noticed my head was bleeding, and someone around me went and got the first aid people and they came up to where I was sitting to look at it,” Guidry, a mechanical engineering sophomore, said in the report.

The student section was also the focus of an apology Monday from athletic director Joe Alleva. At least part of the student section particpated in a vulgar chant directed at coach Nick Saban late in the game.

“Unfortunately, a small minority of people chose to diminish the image of our great university by engaging in a profane chant directed toward Coach Saban. We are deeply sorry that such crude behavior occurred in Tiger Stadium, because that is the antithesis of what we represent at LSU," Alleva said.

“If it occurs in the future, we will make every effort to identify those who choose to act in this manner and make sure they know they are no longer welcome in our stadium. Our hope, however, is that this will never happen again."
