Mississippi town has had enough with "sagging" pants

Posted: Updated:
LAUREL, Miss. (CNN) -

"Pull up your pants please!" That's the call of officials in Laurel, Mississippi.

They've launched an advertising campaign encouraging young people to ditch the so-called "sagging" style.

Mayor Johnny Magee says no one wants to see a person's underwear on display in public. Many stores in town already refuse service to sagging customers.

There's no law on the books for police to enforce "no sagging," but Magee says one in the works.

The town's police chief also says if someone is showing skin while sagging, it could be considered indecent exposure.
