Man jailed... for his saggy jeans
A man has been jailed by an American judge for wearing saggy trousers.
Twenty-year-old LaMarcus Ramsey was in Autauga County Circuit Court, in Alabama, 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 a three-day sentence for contempt of court.
The judge told Ramsey to buy trousers that fit or a belt when he gets out of the county jail.
He said he finds it disrespectful and a disruption when people wear trousers below their waistline in his chambers.
Judge Bush said: "To me, it's not any different than if someone stood up in court and started cussing everybody out.
"It's disrespectful conduct and I think as judges we're expected to at least have some degree of control and respect for the courtroom the people have given us charge of."
