*The town of Dublin, Georgia is now ready to slap a $200 fine on anyone who lets their pants sag.
Dublin Mayor Phil Best said he plans to sign this week an amendment to the municipality’s indecent exposure ordinance, reports CNN. The amendment, which Best plans to put into immediate effect at the City Council meeting, prohibits the wearing of pants or skirts “more than three inches below the top of the hips exposing the skin or undergarments.”
“We’ve gotten several complaints from citizens saying the folks with britches down below their buttocks was offensive, and wasn’t there something we could do about it,” Best said.
The mayor said after about a year of fielding complaints, he put the city attorney to work researching how other localities have dealt with the exposure. The result was that council members decided to put exposure due to baggy clothing in the same category as masturbation, fornication and urination in public places.
Patrolling for offenders will be left to local police in the town about 140 miles southeast of Atlanta. Violators could face fines ranging from $25 to $200, or court-mandated community service.
