Town council: $500 fine for saggy pants

"Cajun Town Bans Saggy Pants" (Breitbart.Com, June 13, 2007):
Delcambre, LA. (AP) - Sag your britches somewhere else, this Cajun-country town has decided.

Mayor Carol Broussard said he would sign an ordinance the town council approved this week setting penalties of up to six months in jail and a $500 fine for being caught in pants that show undergarments or certain parts of the body.

Broussard said he has nothing against saggy pants but thinks people who wear them should use discretion. "It's gotten way out of hand out here," he said.
Broussard's advice for folks who like to wear their pants low? "They're better off taking the pants off and just wearing a dress." Wonder: was that gender specific?
