Saggy Pants Land Man in Jail

Saggy pants may be a fashion crime, but can they land you in real jail? The answer is yes:

Meet Lamarcus Ramsey.

The 19-year-old Alabama man was sentenced yesterday to three days in jail after he appeared in court with jeans that were hanging so low that an irate judge cited him for contempt.

The crime? "showing your butt in court":

The jurist added, “You can spend three days in jail. When you get out you can buy pants that fit, or at least get a belt to hold up your pants so your underwear doesn’t show.”

We gave up on judicial wigs ages ago. I'm sure in another twenty years we'll be going to court sans pants. Our friend Lamarcus is leading the way to a less stilted future.

Where I'm from this is actually a law, well a city ordinance, they'll give you a citation.

I dont understand how you can give someone a fine because you can see their underwear, underwear are made just like pants there is no discernible difference between the two
