A mayor in the US state of Louisiana says he will sign into law a proposal to make wearing low hung trousers an act of indecent exposure. Delcambre town council unanimously passed the ordinance earlier this week making it a crime to wear trousers that show underwear. "If you expose your private parts, you'll get a fine" of US$500 (£254) Mayor Carol Broussard said. "It's about showing off your underwear in public." Offenders will also risk up to six months in jail.
