A University of New Mexico football player was arrested at San Francisco International Airport after he refused to pull up his pants when he boarded a flight. Deshon Marmon was asked by US Airways gate agents to pull up his pants, which were sagging somewhere between his butt and his knees, before he boarded the plane. He did not. When he sat in his seat (with his pants, as the song goes, on the ground – or at least near the ground) he was asked by staff to leave the plane. He refused.
After 15 minutes he finally left, upon which he was arrested for trespassing and held on $11,000 bail.
Marmon’s mother said her son was a bit of an emotional mess because he had just attended the funeral of a friend.
