Teen Shot in Behind Over Sagging Pants

HT to my friend Patrick Novecosky. Truth is stranger than fiction…

Sample phot...NOT the Memphis teen!

“Pants on the ground” leads to a bullet in the bum.

Full story here.

Police say a 45-year-old Memphis man angry over two teens’ sagging pants shot one in the buttocks during an argument. He faces aggravated assault charges.

The boys were walking through a southeast Memphis neighborhood when Kenneth E. Bonds yelled at them to pull up their pants, according to an arrest document.

Police Sgt. Ron Perry said the teens refused and the three began arguing in the street. Bonds then brandished a semi-automatic pistol and threatened to shoot the teens.

Perry said Bonds fired several shots and hit one of the teens as the pair ran away. The teen’s wound wasn’t critical. The other wasn’t injured in the Sept. 25 shooting first reported by The Commercial Appeal in Memphis.

A court clerk says it’s not clear if Bonds had a lawyer.

    This is funny, but it’s not.

    I would’ve told the guys to put belts on, pull up the pants, or whatever it took to get them to not sag. However, to shoot someone over an immoral act is extreme.
