WKRG Admits On-Air That Yes, Our Sports Director's Son Is In The Teabagging Video

Randy Patrick was mysteriously absent from tonight's 10:00 news on WKRG in Mobile, but anchor Mel Showers stood in and briefly noted that as we reported on Deadspin earlier today, Randy's son Patrick Setterstrom is a co-star of the now-famous video of the Alabama teabagging incident.

The story led newscasts tonight in Birmingham and New Orleans. Birmingham tried to put a pro-Alabama spin on the story, alleging the victim of the incident was drunkenly shoving 'Bama fans earlier on Bourbon Street. In New Orleans, meanwhile, WVUE is reporting the victim has retained an attorney and that charges will be filed soon.


As always, if you have information on this incident, send us an email.
