A 16-year-old was walking in the middle of the road with his pants drooping below his underwear when an officer approached him.
Police said the officer several times told the teen to take his hands out of his sagging pants and hold his hands up. He refused, so the officer did a pat down, allegedly finding a handgun and five bags of marijuana.
That’s when the boy tried to run but pants falling down his legs made that a losing proposition and he was apprehended.
The teen was charged with Possession of a Stolen Firearm, Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana, Obstruction of a Public Roadway, Illegal Carrying of a Concealed Firearm, Illegal Carrying of a Firearm in the Presence of Illegal Narcotics, Resisting an Officer, and Curfew Violation.
He was also charged with violating the city’s saggy pants prohibition.
