Call it the pants patrol, if you will, but Brunswick police have issued three citations since the city this past November began enforcing an ordinance to prevent pants from sagging too far below the waist.
Commissioner James Brooks, who has since been suspended following an influence peddling indictment, originally brought a request to the commission this past July, when he said the city needed to have a tougher ordinance on sagging pants. Brooks could not be reached Monday.
The style that began in prisons and has been popularized by rappers features a baggy type of pants or shorts sagging below the waist, allowing undergarments to be seen.
