After Burns’ unidentified father reportedly told him that he should “smarten up his appearance,” Burns allegedly went to the kitchen to grab a butcher knife. He then reportedly stabbed his father on the left side of his chest. When police were summoned, they reportedly discovered a pool of blood on the floor where the Father was sitting.

Burns’ dad was rushed to a hospital, where doctors report that his injuries were not life-threatening, but the boy was taken to a county jail and is being held on a $75,000 bond.

Hip-hop artists of the 1990s began to wear sagging pants, emulating U.S. convicts who were not allowed belts in prison. The fashion spread like wildfire to primarily urban youth, and since then, many local governments have tried to put the kibosh on the “fashion trend” by instituting laws and clothing ordinances against sagging pants in public. For example, in Opa-Locka, Fla., one can receive a hefty fine for the offense.

In spite of the laws, many youth continue to sag their pants.
