An image obtained by The Advocate shows one of the two Alabama students who were arrested after sneaking into Tiger Stadium and damaging the eye of the tiger logo at midfield. 

The image, shared by a fellow Alabama student who desired to remain anonymous, was posted to Snapchat. The image shows Timothy Foley on the field, and was posted by Sean McGinty, both 18 and from Maryland. 

The pair was arrested early Saturday morning. They were later issued a summons and released by the LSU Police Department.


A pair of Alabama students from Maryland broke into LSU's Tiger Stadium overnight Friday and scratched the eye of the tiger at midfield, according to ESPN's Marty Smith.

The students are identified as Timothy Foley, 18, and Sean McGinty, 18. They were issued a summons and released by the LSU Police Department, according to ESPN.

Alabama responded to the incident, saying they were "saddened to learn" of the actions of their students. 

"LSU and the city of Baton Rouge have once again provided a gracious welcome to the University of Alabama and its fans, and these individual acts do not represent the broader UA community," wrote Associate VP for communications Monica Watts in a release. 

When contacted by The Advocate around 10 a.m., LSUPD said it couldn't release any information at that time.

Smith said he spoke with David Taylor, LSU's assistant athletic director for event management, who said the two men jumped a fence and were arrested at midfield. Taylor said he got the call at 3 a.m.

LSU hosts Alabama at 7 p.m. Saturday. ESPN College GameDay is airing live from The Quad in LSU's campus.
