Saggy Pants Arrest

Saggy Pants Arrest, Prosecutors said Wednesday they will not press charges against the University of New Mexico football player was arrested after using his pants down in a plane at the airport in San Francisco.
The Office of San Mateo County District Attorney reviewed the June 15 Deshon Marman’s arrest and determine the criminal charges is not justified.
“My belief is that if we take this in a room with 12 members of our community in our jury, he said, ‘Come on guys, you have more important things to spend your time on,” prosecutor Steve Wagstaffe said district. “And I share that view.”
Marman was arrested on suspicion of violation of domicile, the battery on a police officer and obstruction after police say he refused to leave the flight of U.S. Airways in the captain’s orders.
The incident sparked allegations of racial discrimination after it appeared a picture of a man who flew aboard a U.S. flight Women wearing panties Airways low and mid-thigh, mean days before the arrest of Marmara. That man was white. Marman is African American.
Dozens of people gathered outside San Francisco City Hall on Tuesday in support of Marmara. San Francisco Supervisor Malia Cohen told the crowd that he planned to introduce a resolution asking the San Mateo County prosecutors to dismiss the case and a formal apology by the airline.
“I’ve been trying to find myself and to search for information that is given through the media to learn what had gone wrong Deshon,” said Marman’s mother, Donna Doyle, in a telephone interview Wednesday. “And for the life of me I could not find anything.”
Police also said Marman wounded an officer while being arrested. But Wagstaffe said the officer suffered a scratch and twisted knee, but no significant lesions. Marman should have left the plane, at the request of police officers and a sheriff’s deputy, said Wagstaffe, but his refusal may have reflected his mental state. Marman had attended the funeral of a friend the day before.
“I think the (district attorney) was aware of the real villain in this case was U.S. Airways, Deshon Marman not,” said attorney Marman, Joseph Sullivan.
Marman said O’Sullivan and Doyle were unavailable for comment.
The incident began when he was asked several times to climb Marman pants, but not hear, according to airline officials. They said that was the exhibition of a body part.
O’Sullivan has denied that, and Wagstaffe said Wednesday that their investigation found no evidence that the body was exposed.
Liz Landau, a U.S. spokesman Airways said the airline is by the claims of its employees Marman body part was exposed.
The airline expects the district attorney’s decision to allow Marman and family to “leave behind this incident,” he said.
“As the (district attorney) said, Mr. Marman could have resolved the situation quickly at the time of the incident had chosen to do so,” he said.
The airline has previously said the plane was thrown Marman, not his clothes, but because it rejected the request of an employee.
Marman plans to file a lawsuit against U.S. Airways alleging that he suffered racial discrimination, said O’Sullivan.
