According to U.S. Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder, Marman’s saggy pants were in violation of the airline’s dress code, which prohibits “indecent exposure or inappropriate” clothing.
Marman’s pants were allegedly “below his buttocks, but above the knees, and his boxer shorts were showing.”
Sgt. Michael Rodriguez told the San Francisco Chronicle that a U.S. Airways employee asked Marman, who was boarding a flight to Albuquerque, N.M., to pull up his pants. The Lobos safety refused, and was then asked to leave the plane.
After 15 minutes, Marman complied and was cited for trespassing, battery and resisting arrest. He was being held on $11,000 bail, with his arraignment scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
There may have been a reason behind Marman’s insubordination, however:
Marman's mother, Donna Doyle, tells the paper that her son had attended a friend's funeral and he was still in an emotionally raw state.
One thing is for certain, and that is Marman’s arrest gives new meaning to the phrase “crime of fashion.”
