GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay City Council has decided against imposing a ban on saggy pants in the city.

Even the alderman who proposed the idea voted against it at Tuesday night's meeting. Alderman Dave Boyce said he just wanted to have a discussion on the issue of banning low-riding pants. He had claimed saggy pants are bad for the city's image.

WLUK-TV reported other city leaders argued that passing the ban would cast the city in a bad light.
