The war against sagging pants has reached new heights.

According to the Grio, an Alabama judge has jailed a man for three days for wearing sagging pants to court.

Upon arriving to court for reasons entirely unrelated to his wardrobe, the judge took one look at LaMarcus Ramsey’s baggy attire and sent him directly to jail!

From the Grio:

“The Montgomery Advertiser reports that 20-year-old LaMarcus D. Ramsey was in Autauga County Circuit Court on Tuesday to enter a plea on a charge of receiving stolen property.

Circuit Judge John Bush told Ramsey his blue jeans were sagging too low and gave him the three-day stint, which will be served in the Autauga Metro jail. The judge told Ramsey to buy pants that fit or a belt when he gets out of jail.”


As we’ve reported to you before, quite a few cities and counties across the country have adopted “anti-sagging pants” legislation. Just last month, New York Senator Eric Adams made headlines by lobbying for a resolution that would ban sagging pants in New York City public schools.

Do you agree with the judge’s actions, or was it an overreaction?

Should it be illegal to wear sagging jeans?
