Georgia town bans saggy pants

October 11, 2007

HAWKINSVILLE, Ga.---A middle Georgia town has become one of the first in the state to pass a "baggy pants" law. It's the city of Hawkinsville in Pulaski County.

The law makes it illegal for anyone to appear in public wearing pants or short below the waist which expose the skin or underwear.

Violations call for fines or community service.

At the elementary school there, they already give kids a rope to hold up their sagging pants.
