Just days before a University of New Mexico football player was arrested at San Francisco International Airport over a sagging-pants dispute, US Airways allowed an older man to fly dressed in tight women’s lingerie, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
The airline told the paper that it doesn’t have a dress code policy as long as the passenger is not exposing their “private parts.”
Police said Deshon Marman, the player booted June 15 for his droopy drawers, had his boxers exposed, and his lawyer said surveillance video will prove no skin was visible.
"It just shows the hypocrisy involved," Joe O'Sullivan, Marman’s attorney, said according to the paper. "They let a drag queen board a flight and welcomed him with open arms.”
