Dez Bryant Kicked Out of Dallas Mall For Wearing Pants Too Low

Yes, this actually happened. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and three friends were given a criminal trespass warning for what police termed “wearing their pants halfway down their hips exposing their underwear” in a Dallas mall. Police claim they asked Bryant and Co. to pull their pants up, leading Bryant to respond with a “profanity-laced” tirade. He has been banned from the mall for 90 days.

A News 8 source quoted this exchange.

“What the [expletive] are you stopping me, like I stole something,”…”I’m not leaving until my attorney and my representative get here.”

Police mentioned a pattern of annoying incidents including “a major disturbance at a restaurant,” “a parking offense” and (gasp!) cutting in line at the Apple Store. It doesn’t matter who you are. You wait until that Genius Bar wrangler beckons.

Bryant certainly comes off as a nogoodnik here, but does Texas have a law dictating you can’t wear low-slung pants? Is it really a police officer’s job to enforce dress code? Do they enforce the “coke can rule” for skirt length?
