LaMarcus Ramsey was ordered to serve a three-day jail sentence for contempt of court for wearing saggy pants out in public, reports the Montgomery Advertiser.

The 20-year-old man was in Alabama’s Autauga County Circuit Court on Tuesday to enter a plea on a charge of receiving stolen property. Circuit Judge John Bush‘s fashion sensibilities were obviously offended by the fact that Ramsey’s blue jeans were not sitting on his waist, but sagging to the point where his underwear was exposed.

The judge admonished the young man and didn’t mince words when he warned, “You are in contempt of court because you showed your butt in court,” a visibly irate Bush told Ramsey. “You can spend three days in jail. When you get out you can buy pants that fit, or at least get a belt to hold up your pants so your underwear doesn’t show.”

The sagging pants issue has gained a lot of attention over the past few years. Many view it as a crime of fashion. There has even been legislation introduced and school district dress codes enforced in an effort to ban the style of dress that many consider by many to be offensive and indecent.

Even President Barack Obama spoke about the sagging pants style in 2008 before he was elected. He didn’t support legislation banning it, but did say that “brothers should pull up their pants.”
