Va. Bill Sets Fine for Low-Riding Pants

RICHMOND, Va. - Virginians who wear their pants so low their underwear shows may want to think about investing in a stronger belt.

The state's House of Delegates passed a bill Tuesday authorizing a $50 fine for anyone who displays his or her underpants in a "lewd or indecent manner."

Del. Lionell Spruill Sr., a Democrat who opposed the bill, had pleaded with his colleagues to remember their own youthful fashion follies.

During an extended monologue Monday, he talked about how they dressed or wore their hair in their teens. On Tuesday, he said the measure was an unconstitutional attack on young blacks that would force parents to take off work to accompany their children to court just for making a fashion statement.

"This is a foolish bill, Mr. Speaker, because it will hurt so many," Spruill said before the measure was approved 60-34. It now goes to the state Senate.

The bill's sponsor, Del. Algie T. Howell, has said constituents were offended by the exposed underwear. He did not speak on the floor Tuesday.

Spruill and Howell, also a Democrat, are both black.

Wow is there no limit as to how far they will go to make a few extra bucks. I swear what can we do nowadays and not get in trouble for. No low riding pants, no speeding, no passing on the right, no cell phones in the car (state depending)

Anyone want to chip in and we can buy an island?

While I personally feel that people look rediculous walking around with their asses hanging out... they have a right to do so if they want to, damn it!

I wonder if it'll get past the bill stage.

I dont think thats the case all the time. I sometimes sag my pants if they're too short on the bottom. But not always.

Sometimes my pants sag cuz they fit me big and I couldn't find my belt. I never do it on purpose...

What about when I am snowbaording and I fall and get up and my pants are around my ass and I dont reallize it. Will I get fined? It's bullshit!
