I always have wondered at what point pants sagging becomes indecent exposure, and it appears one student reached that limit recently as cops reacted accordingly.
A Derby High School sophomore said Friday that he was hit by a Taser and had his arm broken by two school resource officers for refusing to pull up his pants.
The Derby Police Department said it will investigate the incident. The officers work for the department. The teen and the Police Department offered differing accounts of what happened.
Jonathan Villarreal, 17, said he was walking with friends to the bus after school on Wednesday when one of the officers ordered him to pull up his pants. He told them he could wear them how he wanted because school was out, he said.
I’m all for making kids pull their pants up, but I’m not entirely sure tazing seventeen year olds is the way to go.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
