Alabama Man Jailed 3 Days For Sagging Pants

PRATTVILLE, Ala., (UPI) — An Alabama judge, offended by a 20-year-old defendant’s low-slung blue jeans, sent him to jail for three days for contempt of court.

LaMarcus D. Ramsey of Prattville was in Autauga County Circuit Court Tuesday to enter a plea for a charge of receiving stolen property when he ran afoul of the judge’s fashion judgment, the Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser reported Wednesday.

Circuit Judge John Bush became visibly irate at Ramsey’s state of dress and told him to spend three days in the Autauga Metro jail.

“You are in contempt of court because you showed your butt in court,” Bush told Ramsey. “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.”
