I can’t say I haven’t been victim of a fad. I totally used to do that jean cuff rollover oragami thing in middle school. That, that was ridiculous. I was totally into plaid when grunge was awesome to the point that they were the only button up shirts I owned.
I was also into silly bands that one summer. Oh man, silly bands.
But, are baggy jeans still a thing? It seems that trend should have mutated into something else by now. I’m a big fan of the whole over-the-top-obviously-hipster-thick-blacked-rimmed-glasses-and-a-bowtie-while-playing-basketball trend. That one is pretty good.
Shamel Dixon’s loose-fitting jeans weren’t the only thing falling down after police took him into custody early Saturday in downtown Easton.
At one point, court records say, the jeans fell down, but so did a glassine baggie containing marijuana.
Dixon, 24, of Brooklyn, N.Y., who was detained because of his alleged involvement in a fight, was charged with possession or distribution of a small amount of marijuana. Police said the marijuana was for personal use.
He also was charged with resisting arrest – he refused to be handcuffed – and disorderly conduct, which was related to the fight.
A criminal complaint filed by Sgt. Salvatore Cucciuffo says Dixon ran from police around 2:05 am at Pine and S. Sitgreaves streets and was caught about a block away at Ferry and S. Sitgreaves.
Dixon refused to be handcuffed – he pulled his arms away and placed them “under his stomach.”
His jeans kept falling down while he was being taken to the city police station. At one point the bag of marijuana also fell out, the complaint says. SOURCE: The Easton Patch
To be fair, they would have found the pot in his pants anyway, but, it’s kinda comical that it hit the ground.
But, seriously, if you’re a criminal wouldn’t you want to wear spandex? How can you possibly expect to run away from the police if your pants are always falling down? You’re just hurting yourself.
Also, shouldn’t super baggy pants have super deep pockets? Questions for life.
