Well, at least it wasn’t 400 pounds of copper wire being sold back to the place from which it was stolen. Allegedly.
The latest odd off-field incident to occur this offseason comes courtesy of the San Francisco Chronicle, which is reporting that New Mexico defensive back Deshon Marman was arrested on multiple charges earlier this week following an incident at San Francisco International Airport.
According to the Chronicle, Marman was flying back to campus from California after attending the funeral of a close friend, who had died 11 days after being shot, when the incident took place. And the reason the incident took place? Basically, Marman’s pants were sagging below his ass and he refused to pull them up.
Here’s the paper’s account of what transpired:
On Wednesday, San Francisco police got a call about 9 a.m. that someone was exposing himself outside a US Airways gate, Sgt. Michael Rodriguez said.
An airline employee spotted Marman before he boarded Flight 488, bound for Albuquerque, and complained that Marman’s pants “were below his buttocks but above the knees, and that much of his boxer shorts were exposed,” Rodriguez said.
The employee asked Marman to pull up his pants before he boarded the plane, but he refused, Rodriguez said. Marman allegedly repeated his refusal after taking his seat on the plane.
“At that point he was asked to leave the plane,” Rodriguez said. “It took 15 to 20 minutes of talking to get him to leave the plane, and he was arrested for trespassing.” Marman allegedly resisted officers as he was being led away.
Marman was ultimately charged with suspicion of trespassing, battery and resisting arrest. He is currently being held on an $11,000 bond.
Marman’s mother told the paper that her son was targeted “because of the way he looks – young black man with dreads and baggy pants. But he’s a good kid trying to make it, and he’s going through a lot. And then this happens.”
After playing at City College of San Francisco, Marman transferred to the Lobos earlier this year. He was the No. 47 player in Rivals.com‘s 2011 JUCO rankings.
