St. Louis alderwoman wants ban on saggy pants

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis alderwoman wants people in the city to pull up their pants.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Alderwoman Marlene Davis is proposing legislation making it a violation to wear pants below the waist if it exposes skin or undergarments.

A few other municipalities in the St. Louis area have similar laws. Some civil rights groups say the laws restrict personal expression.

Davis' proposal provides for a fine of up to $500 and up to 90 days in jail for offenders.
