PLAQUEMINE- Iberville Parish leaders overwhelming supported introducing an ordinance to ban sagging pants across the parish.

The proposed law was only mentioned Tuesday, per procedure, and will be voted on next month. If it is passed, people could be fined $50 for a first violation, $100 for a second and $100 plus community service for a third infraction.

Leaders believe sagging pants are inappropriate.

"I don't think anybody should have to go to a store, or anywhere in this parish, and look at sagging pants," said Councilman "Pete Kelley.

Others think it's a petty decision.

"They've got bigger fish to fry," said Foy Harris. "I wouldn't worry about clothing."
