GAUTIER, Miss. (AP) - City leaders in Gautier have decided to study the saggy pants issued and tabled a city ordinance against it.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1Nq2Wjb) three residents urged them Tuesday night not to make it illegal. They said they felt it would set police at odds with the city’s youth and cause the city undue problems — open the door to profiling and put a financial burden on the youth.

The council voted 4-2 to table the indecent exposure ordinance that would outlaw pants or skirts worn well below the hips.

City council members expressed concerns that outlawing saggy pants specifically could tax the police department and that if challenged in court, would wind up costing the city taxpayers.
