School Bans Baggy Pants

February 29, 1996| Associated Press

CHARDON, Ohio — A middle school has banned baggy, low-slung pants as a safety hazard.

"We had incidents where students were 'de-pantsed' in the halls and another where a student tripped on their pant legs and fell into a science table," said Hugh Terrell, Chardon Middle School's assistant principal.

The fashion has also been associated with gang affiliation, but Terrell said gangs were not a concern at the school.
