A Cheeky Problem: NJ Town to Restrict Baggy Pants

A Jersey shore town is hoping to put a problem behind it.

Wildwood is set to pass a law prohibiting overly saggy jeans that show underwear or skin when worn on the boardwalk.

Mayor Ernest Troiano says families that have been coming to the popular resort for decades are telling him they no longer will if they have to look at people's rear ends while walking the boardwalk.

The law is set for a final vote Wednesday and brings fines of $25 to $200. It also bans going shirtless or barefoot on the boardwalk.

The mayor is confident the law would withstand a court challenge, but civil libertarians predict it wouldn't.
