BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Some call it cool, others call it disgusting, but sagging your pants in Brunswick could cost you.
It's a trend that has many looking the other way. "I've seen them all the way under the butt, where it's almost hard to walk," said Gerald Kincaid.
"It's disgusting, but it's what they prefer to do," said James Dyal.
But the mayor of Brunswick wants to get the bottom of sagging, by hitting violators where it hurts, their wallets. They would be fined $25. "If it discourages blights in regards to bottoms, I think it's a great idea," said Kincaid.
"The government shouldn't be able to tell you what to wear," said Levy Thompson.
The City of Brunswick already has an ordinance that says it is indecent exposure if anyone wears their pants three-inches below their waist or exposes their undergarments.
But soon city commissioners will vote on whether the ordinance should be enforced with a $25 fine. "It's a good idea, but I don't think you should fine them for that," said Thompson.
"If my kids were to do it, I would take the money out of their allowance," said Dyal.
The law would only be enforced on sidewalks, and public areas within the city limits. But it couldn't stop anyone from sagging on private properties or inside of businesses.
"They're in the streets. They're going to wear their pants down to where their butt is," said Dyal. If the amendment passes, code enforcement officers would write the tickets.
