Former Falcons quarterback Bobby Hebert was ejected from the LSU press box Saturday night during LSU’s 21-17 loss to Alabama in Baton Rouge.
LSU officials confirmed Hebert was escorted out by police during the fourth quarter after ignoring warnings not to cheer or disturb sports writers and other media covering the game. Press box etiquette does not allow members of the media to cheer for teams. Rules are posted in most press boxes.
“He was disturbing other media members who were trying to do their jobs and he was warned twice,” LSU associate sports information director Bill Martin told the The Times-Picayune of New Orleans. “We had complaints from several people in the press box.”
Hebert, who played four season for the Falcons, is a sports radio host in Louisiana, broadcasting from outside Tiger Stadium prior to home games. His son, T-Bob Hebert, played at LSU, graduating after the 2011 season.
Hebert signed with the Falcons in 1993 and was picked for the Pro Bowl that season. He played for the Falcons for three more seasons before retiring in 1996. He started 41 games for the Falcons and also played seven season for the Saints.
Hebert was born in Cut Off, Louisiana and played at Northwestern State Louisiana.
