Saggy trousers law overturned
After an American teenager spent a night in jail for leaving his underwear exposed by sagging trousers, a court overturned the law, declaring it unconstitutional.
The 17-year-old spent a night in jail after police arrested him for exposing 4in (10cm) of boxer shorts in Riviera Beach, south-east Florida.
Town voters backed the law in March after supporters raised a petition.
However, a circuit judge ruled that the law was unconstitutional based on "the limited facts" of the case.
Carol Bickerstaff, defending teenager Julius Hart, had urged Judge Paul Moyle to throw out the law, saying: "Your honour, we now have the fashion police."
(I'm told that the fashion started after youths started mimicking prison uniforms, on which belts are banned to prevent prisoners from hanging themselves- can anyone confirm this, or were my American friends just messing me about?)
