ALBANY - Officials in Georgia say a city's ban on saggy pants has generated nearly $4,000 in fines in less than a year.
City Attorney Nathan Davis says 187 citations have been issued and $3,916 in fines collected since the ordinance went into effect Nov. 23, according to the Albany Herald.
Officials say the ordinance bans anyone from wearing pants or skirts more than 3 inches (7.6 centimetres) below the top of the hips, exposing the skin or undergarments. First-time offenders face a $25 fine. On further offences, the fine can rise to $200.
The ordinance also allows 40 hours of community service to be completed in lieu of fines.
