Video Released Of Athlete Kicked Off Plane For Sagging Pants
As reported here, University of New Mexico football player Deshon Marman was arrested and taken off of a plane for sagging his pants. Now there is footage of the ordeal where a seated, cordial Marman is cooperating with authorities.
“My pants are up sir,” Deshon Marman tells the captain, who along with someone who appears to be a San Francisco police officer, is standing near his seat. “I’m not doing anything. I paid my fees, and I’m ready to go.”
A fellow passenger filmed the confrontation but according to US Airways, what was not shown was Marman’s banter with the employee at the jetway who he told to pull his pants up when he was told his underwear was exposed.
Marman said in an interview with KGO-TV this week that his pants were slightly below his waist, and he was unable to lift them up because he had bags in his hands.
His lawyer said once he was seated there should not have been an issue. Watch the clip and tell us what you think.
