N.M. football player's baggy pants get him arrested

'Inappropriate' attire lead to trespassing ticket, say police

SAN FRANCISCO — On Wednesday, a University of New Mexico football player wore sagging pants to San Francisco International Airport and ended up arrested, the Associated Press reported today.

According to police Sgt. Michael Rodriguez, Deshon Marman, 20, was heading to Albuquerque, but as he boarded his flight, a U.S. Airways employee noticed his outfit and did not like what she saw.

The employee described his pants as "below his buttocks, but above the knees," say sources, and she asked him to rearrange his clothing.

Marman, however, ignored her request to hike up his baggy pants, so the employee asked him to leave.

"His boxer shorts were showing," she said.

Valerie Wunder, spokeswoman for US Airways, said Marman violated the airline's dress code, which forbids "inappropriate" attire.

Marman ended up with a trespassing ticket for his delayed exit, which reportedly took about 15 minutes.
