Baggy pants illegal: 'Contrary to safety', says new ban in Louisiana town

Baggy pants illegal: 'Contrary to safety', says new ban in Louisiana town, Are baggy pants illegal now? That seems to be the case for one Louisiana town, as Vibe reported this Monday, April 15, that Terrebonne Parish has decided to make anyone wearing baggy pants a punishable offense.

According to one statement, baggy pants — wearing jeans, for example, below the waistline with one’s underwear showing — are being put on a ban by the conservative Louisiana town. Making baggy pants illegal is being put into place because, says the report:

“Appearing in public view while exposing one’s skin or undergarments below the waist is contrary to safety, health, peace and good order of the parish and the general welfare."

Having baggy pants illegal will hold some serious consequences for offenders wearing their pants a bit too low for comfort. People will first be charged a hefty $50 fine for a first time offense, then $100 for a second time offense, and finally 16 hours along with a more expensive fine if they are caught a third time or more.

Of course, the question of having underwear in the public view raises the question: Is it even legal to make baggy pants illegal in the first place?
