NAACP to picket at SFO over saggy pants incident

Monday, July 18, 2011
Deshon Marman skype interview with ABC7 News Deshon Marman, 20, says he feels sorry for all those inconvenienced by the disruption the incident caused.

The San Francisco NAACP plans to picket U.S. Airways at San Francisco International Airport this afternoon over the saggy pants incident.

DeShon Marman was kicked off a flight for not pulling up his baggy pants. He was arrested for refusing a captain's order to leave the plane, but the San Mateo County district attorney's office decided not to file charges.

The NAACP wants a meeting with US Airways to get a much clearer dress code policy. The airline has said its biggest problem with the incident was Marman's refusal to follow the crews' orders.

US Airways has not returned calls from ABC7 News about today's protest.
