Twenty-year-old LaMarcus Ramsey made the mistake of showing up to Alabama's Autayga County Circuit Court this past Tuesday (4/10) with his pants sagging way below his waste. His pants were sagging so low that his underwear was showing in full. Even though this is a style that many individuals choose to wear these days, Circuit Judge John Bush was having none of it.
Ramsey was initially in court to submit a plea deal on a charge of receiving stolen property, but when Judge Bush saw how low his pants were, he ordered Ramsey to serve three days in jail and to go buy pants that fit him properly. Ramsey was officially jailed for contempt of court for wearing saggy pants in public.
Here's what Judge Bush had to say to Ramsey:
"You are in contempt of court because you showed your butt in court. You can spend three days in jail. When you get out you can buy pants that fit, or at least get a belt to hold up your pants so your underwear doesn't show."
Now, that has to be one of the worst reasons in history to spend time behind bars.
