U.S. Judge Orders Man to Jail For Saggy Pants---PRATTVILLE, Ala.(AP) — A central Alabama judge ordered a man to serve three days in jail for contempt of court for wearing so-called saggy pants.

Circuit Judge John Bush told Ramsey his blue jeans were sagging too low and gave him the three-day stint. The judge told Ramsey to buy pants that fit or a belt when he gets out of the county jail.
