Saggy pants get a boost

RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - September 16, 2008

A judge has ruled a city law banning drooping trousers in Riviera Beach is unconstitutional.

Seventeen-year-old Julius Hart spent a night in jail after an officer saw his boxers while the teen was riding a bike.

A first offense for saggy pants carries a fine of 150 bucks or community service.

Repeat offenders face jail time.

In light of the judge's ruling, the teen's lawyer hopes city officials will now drop their pants -- law.
