      ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A St. Louis alderwoman's effort to make wearing saggy pants a crime is drawing opposition from residents.

      Alderwoman Marlene Davis believes young men who wear their pants too low create lewd conduct that should be outlawed. She hosted a public meeting Tuesday night on the topic.

      Several people at the meeting spoke out, saying it's unfair to target people for a fashion choice.

      Aldermen will consider the ban in September. If passed, violators could face fines of up to $500 and jail time.
