Baggy pants lead to player's arrest at SF airport - Yahoo! News
SAN FRANCISCO – A University of New Mexico football player's saggy pants led to his arrest and removal from an airplane at San Francisco International Airport, authorities said Thursday.
Deshon Marman, 20, was boarding a flight Wednesday to Albuquerque, N.M., when a U.S. Airways employee noticed his pants were below his buttocks, and his boxer shorts were showing, Sgt. Michael Rodriguez of the San Francisco Police Department told the San Francisco Chronicle.
Marman refused the employee's request to pull up his pants and failed to immediately comply when she asked him to get off the plane, Rodriguez said, adding Marman injured a police officer when he was being arrested.
The football player was arrested on suspicion of trespassing, battery of a police officer and obstruction of a police investigation, Rodriguez told The Associated Press.
Marman's mother, Donna Doyle, told the newspaper her son was emotionally fragile after the funeral of his close friend, who died 11 days after being shot.
Marman was being held in San Mateo County Jail while prosecutors determine whether to file charges, Rodriguez said.
US Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder said the airline's dress code forbids indecent exposure or inappropriate attire.
University of New Mexico football coach Mike Locksley said the school is aware of Marman's arrest and plans to support him.
"It is never positive when you have a student-athlete arrested, no matter what the circumstances are," he said.

►I have first hand knowledge of this incident. I was on duty with another airline and witnessed the whole thing.
This "kid" was not arrested for Baggy Pants. Here is what went down. While waiting in the boarding area Deshon was informed three times he would NOT be allowed to board with his mostly exposed buttocks hanging out. He was told DO NOT ENTER THE AIRCRAFT FOUR TIMES.
He pushed the US Airways Rep against the wall and walked onto the aircraft. He then pushed past two flight attendents. Hence the Assault Charges. He refused to leave the Aircraft, hence the Tresspassing charges.
He fought with the cops, hence the Resisting Arrest.
This wasn't just baggy pants, it was 99% nudity.
Act like an idiot, get treated like one.
