Shreveport Louisiana man Aaron Woodbury was arrested for wearing his pants too low

Woodbury could be fined up to $100

SHREVEPORT, La. - A Louisiana man was arrested after police said he was wearing his pants too low.

Police say they were responding to a fight, when Aaron Woodbury wouldn’t follow their commands to pull up his pants.

"They gave him an opportunity to correct the problems and leave the area," said Shreveport police Sgt. Bill Goodin. "Refusing to do so ultimately they made a decision to take him into custody."

Woodbury's wife, Semekia Woodbury, said he was arrested only a block away from their home.

"I'm like, 'You’re arresting him because he wouldn't pull up his pants? Why?'" Semekia Woodbury asked.

Aaron Woodbury was arrested on preliminary charges of resisting arrest and the wearing of pants below the waist in public.

According to Shreveport Government Website, anyone caught with their pants sagging below their waist so low as to show their skin or undergarments could be cited and summoned to appear in court. If convicted, they could be fined up to $100 and sentenced to perform a day of community service.
