Are you tired of seeing hooligans with pants that hang well below the hip? So are the Azusa jokesters who took to social media to warn the public of a new ban on wearing saggy pants.
Official looking signs that warned of a $100 fine or 10 days in jail for violating the fashion code soon accompanied the Facebook posts, according to ABC7 Eyewitness News.
“Pull up your pants,” the sign warned. “No one wants to see your underwear.”
The red flag should have been the April Fool’s enforcement date. Still, local citizens flooded the Azusa Police Department’s phone lines, asking about the authenticity of the ordinance.
This prompted Azusa PD to tweet about the hoax and set the record straight.
