Lawmaker's bill would ban pants worn too low.

State Rep. Derrick Shepherd, D-Marrero of Louisiana has drafted a bill would ban pants worn too low.

[He] said he filed the bill because he was tired of catching glimpses of boxer shorts and G-strings over the low-slung belt lines of young adults. The bill would punish anyone caught wearing low-riding pants with a fine of as much as $500 or as many as six months in jail, or both. “I’m sick of seeing it,” said Shepherd, a first-term legislator. “The community’s outraged. And if parents can’t do their job, if parents can’t regulate what their children wear, then there should be a law.”

All I can say is...dude, lighten up. Besides, it would be ashame to outlaw wearing bikini's and skimpy clothing, with summer approaching and all :)
