Deshon Marman, New Mexico Football Player, Arrested on Plane for Sagging Pants
Friday, June 17, 2011 at 7:05 am
Employees say he was busting out some very serious sagging, with his pants down between his butt and his knees, which everyone knows is the coolest look since the Members Only jacket.
A worker asked him to pull them up, since his underwear was showing. Marman refused. When he got on the plane, another worker asked him to yank his pants back up. Again he refused. So they asked him to leave the plane.
As you may know, airline workers don't take their authority lightly. They got in touch with the captain, who decided to take the rest of the passengers off the plane until they could deal with the obstinate Marman.
He finally agreed to leave, just as police were arriving. And that's when he got into a scuffle with police. He was charged with trespassing for refusing to leave the plane.
His mom says he acted out because he was grieving over a dead friend. She also says airport workers profiled him because he's a young black male with dreds.
We'll by the first part over being distraught over the friend's death. But we're more inclined to believe he was singled out because he was dressed like an asshole -- which curiously makes people want to fuck with him -- not because he's black.
