THIBODAUX (AP) — The Thibodaux City Council is considering a saggy-pants ban.

Terrebonne Parish outlawed saggy pants in April. The Lafourche Parish Council passed its ban in 2007.

The Courier reports ( the council is considering an ordinance that parallels the rules and penalties already in place in Lafourche and Terrebonne. It would amend the city's existing indecent exposure law to include "pants that sag below the waist and expose undergarments."

Violators would pay $50 for a first offense, $100 for a second offense and $100 and 16 hours of community service for a third offense.

Council members say the move is in response to constituent complaints.

The saggy pants ordinance is among the items scheduled for discussion at Tuesday's city council meeting.
