Construction Worker Fired for Questionable Facebook Posts

Posted: 7/16/2014

A construction worker, who was fired from his construction job working on Kyle Field when he placed a University of Alabama flag on the field, is being investigated for Facebook comments he posted while doing construction.

Bobby Livingston posted several disturbing comments:

A picture of himself in a University of Alabama shirt with the caption, "Daddy's in College Station.  I'm gonna get 'em buddy.  This stadium will never be ready for this season.  I'm putting iron on backwards and wrong holing everything."

Another post pictured himself at Kyle Field with the caption, "If you ever attend a Texas A&M football game, don't sit at the Northeast End Zone.  It was raining today and I made two very questionable welds."

A&M were unaware of the posts until News 3 notified them.

Raba Kistner Engineering, the inspector for the Kyle Field renovation released a statement:

"All steel fabrication has been observed and critical welds tested/verified at the plants by the third party firm, Raba Kistner Engineering. Once delivered to the site, field welds, moment connections, and bolt torquing are tested/verified in accordance to building code and engineering specification by the third party inspectors. Structural engineers of record review the inspection reports as well as conduct site observation/review of the in place steel."
