The city of Moultrie, in south central Georgia, has a new ordinance on the books ...no saggy pants allowed.
The ban states that pants can't hang lower than 3 inches off your waist....and exposed skin or underwear is not allowed.
Some residents support the ban.
Jimmy Taylor, a Moultire resident, "When I go out to eat somewhere, I don't want see nobody's underwear. There just ain't nothing pretty about that."
Joanna Lee, another resident, said, "It should make a lot of people see you don't have $25 to waste on pulling up your pants."
Others say the ban on sagging pants...mainly aimed at teenagers in the town...is really an issue that needs to be addressed by parents...not a city ordinance.
There's a $25 fine for a first offense and possibly 40 hours of community service.
Repeat offenders face fines up to $200.
