WIGGINS, Miss. (AP) — A ban on saggy pants will go into effect in the south Mississippi city of Wiggins on Sept. 1.

Wiggins Alderman Derrick Gates tells WLOX-TV (http://bit.ly/MTfFO4 ) that he pushed for the ban after an uncomfortable incident in front of his wife and kids. The city passed an ordinance in July.

Anyone violating the ordinance could be ticketed no less than $50 for the first offense and no more than $200 for a subsequent offense.

In addition to the fine, the Wiggins Municipal Court may order someone to participate in up to 40 hours of court approved community service activities.

Violators will be subject to arrest or imprisonment for violation of this section; however, the Wiggins Municipal Court shall have full authority to enforce its orders.
