Saggy pants ordinance passes in Acadia Parish

Posted: Updated:

Acadia Parish has become the latest area to approve the controversial "saggy pants" ordinance.

Tuesday night, the Acadia Parish Police Jury unanimously approved the ordinance, which would outlaw the exposure of undergarments in public in all rural areas. Similar ordinances have been called unconstitutional by the American Civil Liberties Union, and scrutinized for causing racial profiling. Police Jury member AJ Creduer says, its not about profiling, its about respect, decency, even safety.

"If you present yourself in a very good way good things will happen. If you present yourself in a very bad way, bad things will happen. So it's all about presenting yourself in a good way. Have a good attire and you'll see good things come your way." said Creduer.

The ordinance now goes into a 30 day public hearing period, before it is officially approved.
