Are baggy pants a fashion choice or crime? Cities have passed laws before, and they have been ignored, but now in Flint Michigan, it's serious.

The head of police, Chief Dick, ordered the arrest of people known as “saggers.” They can be arrested on site, serve up to a YEAR in jail and pay a huge fine for what Chief Dick calls “immoral self expression.” (I am NOT making this up!)

He also said just having baggy pants could be probable cause for cops to search saggers.
