A Memphis man driven to distraction by the low-riding pants of two youths is facing aggravated assault charges after popping a cap into one of the exposed asses in question.
Kenneth E Bonds had become incensed by the clothing of a pair of teenagers he spotted walking through his neighbourhood. The teens were sporting fashionably low and sagging jeans.
The concerned citizen berated them, telling them to pull their trousers back up, the AP reports. When the teens refused, an argument ensued. Bonds then decided to settle matters by producing a semi-automatic pistol and threatening to shoot the youths.
The lads, unsurprisingly, took to their heels - presumably rather slowly due to their unergonomic trouserware. Bonds took the chance to loose a few shots, hitting one of the teens in the buttocks.
The young man's wound was described as not critical, but Bonds now faces aggravated assault charges.
In another low-down dirty story, a man pulled over by police in Florida denied all knowledge of 27 rocks of crack cocaine found wedged in his butt crack, but freely admitted that the bag of weed also nestling between his buttocks was his own.
Raymond Stanley was stopped for speeding. The police officers who stopped him smelt marijuana and decided to search him. When confronted with the results of their probing, Stanley said: "The white stuff is not mine, but the weed is." ®
