Hahira - Baggy britches in Hahira is now against the law.

The City Council passed an ordinance Thursday night that outlaws baggy pants.

Anyone sporting the trend will be punished with a fine up to $100 plus community service.

Mayor Wayne Bullard says many in the community simply viewed the fashion as indecent exposure and petitioned him to do something about it.

Two council members voted for it, two against.

Bullard broke the tie.

The new law is effective immediately.
