Lobo Busted For Low-Hanging Pants

((HT: KOB-TV Albuquerque))

This really could only happen to someone at the University of New Mexico...

San Francisco Police Department Sgt. Michael Rodriguez said Deshon Marman, a safety for the Lobos, was boarding a flight to Albuquerque when a U.S. Airways employee noticed his pants were "below his buttocks, but above the knees, and his boxer shorts were showing."

Rodriguez told the San Francisco Chronicle that the employee asked Marman to pull up his pants, but he refused. She then asked him to leave the plane.

U.S. Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder says the airline's dress code forbids "indecent exposure or inappropriate" attire.

Marman got off the plane and was charged with trespassing, battery and resisting arrest. He was being held on $11,000 bail, according to the Chronicle.

Marman's mother, Donna Doyle, thought her son was a victim of discrimination.

"He is a big, tall, light-skinned black boy with dread locks, get's on the plane with saggy pants. Right there you're stereotyped," she explained.

Uh huh...

Here's the local rundown...

The HQ is more inclined to go this way...
