LSU Police say they arrested two students from Alabama who allegedly broke into Tiger Stadium over night and tried to damage the Tiger eye that’s painted in the middle of the field.
According to ESPN's Marty Smith, two fans broke into Tiger Stadium and scratched the "Eye of the Tiger" at the 50-yard line.
LSU police officer Kevin Scott confirmed that Timothy Foley and Sean McGinity, both 18-year-old Alabama students from Maryland, were charged with criminal trespassing.
The two were arrested around 3 a.m. Saturday. They were issued a summons and released by the LSU Police Department.
The grounds crew re-painted the eye, prior to LSU's Saturday night matchup against Alabama.
