A baby tailgating at an Arizona State University football game was either chugging beer while doing a keg-stand or was subject to a photo-op, and the university's police department is trying to figure it out.
That photo was posted by someone on TheDirty.com, and not only did "Nik Richie" act like he was offended, but it has also caused a stink with the cops.
The more important question for the cops though, is who posted the photo to website, presumably to help them find the parents.
A university spokeswoman sent us the following statement:
"ASU Police are looking into the posted photo. It's not clear if this is a joke or an actual event that occurred. Police are contacting the web site that displayed the photo to see if they can determine who posted it."
The odds would seem pretty low that several people standing around and giggling about force-feeding beer to a baby in public, but the cops are checking this one out.
