PLAQUEMINE, LA (WAFB) - People in Iberville Parish had plenty to say about a proposed ban on saggy pants.
Parish leaders introduced the measure at Tuesday night's council meeting.
There are a number of towns and parishes all over Louisiana that have made a similar move, including the city of Plaquemine and town of Grosse Tete.
The measure would include the unincorporated areas in Iberville Parish.
"I have a lot of people complain about saggy pants and I have it in my area," said Councilman Louis Kelley Jr. "They say I'm trying to be racial about it, but I'm not. I live in a community in Bayou Sorrell and they are doing the same thing and I just don't think you should have to look at someone's undergarment."
The council could vote on the issue during its next meeting on March 18.
