A University of New Mexico football player was removed from a plane at San Francisco International Airport and arrested after refusing to pull up his sagging pants, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Deshon Marman, 20, who was in San Francisco to attend a former high school teammate's funeral, was asked to pull up his pants before boarding a US Airways flight to Albuquerque, N.M., on Wednesday morning.

Marman's trousers were below his waist and exposed his boxer shorts, the newspaper quoted a police spokesman as saying.

An airline employee asked him to pull up his pants at the boarding gate, and the request was repeated aboard the plane. Marman refused.

He was being held on $11,000 bail for suspicion of trespassing, battery and resisting arrest, according to the newspaper.
