The Minnesota Court of Appeals' proclaimation came after a drug suspect be pinched by St. Paul police officers.
The swab's jeans fell 'bout his ankles when he be puttin' up his hands up, so a scalwag officer hoisted up the droopy drawers. That's when the swab's booty of an illegal sidearm fell out his scuppers.
The suspect got 5 years in the stockade for illegally possessing a firearm.
His attorney argued the sidearm was found in an illegal search.
But the appeals court be thinking the the officer hoisted the pantaloons "presumably to conceal rather than to reveal."
