A city in Louisiana is set to ban saggy pants. 

An ordinance has been passed in The Terrebonne Parish Council and is expected to be signed by the Parish President.

Violators of the ordinance would face a $50 fine on the first offense, even community service for repeatedly letting their pants hang low.
