GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) ó A Green Bay alderman thinks there ought to be a law banning saggy pants.

Alderman Dave Boyce says those wearing low-riding pants and exposed underwear are making the city look bad. Boyce says itís offensive and demeaning to see people walking around with sagging pants.

WLUK-TV says Boyce admits the cityís legal staff has told him it might be a difficult ordinance to enforce. But, Boyce says businesses could refuse to allow saggy pants wearers on their premises.

A similar ordinance went into effect in the New Jersey beach town of Wildwood earlier this month. Fines start at $25, but can go as high as $200 for repeat offenders. A Green Bay City Council committee takes up the issue Monday night.
