    Police are giving their side of the story in the sagging pants arrest case. Here's the text from the police press release: "The aircraft Captain was notified of the incident and requested the SFPD be called. Two officers were dispatched and responded to the scene. Upon arrival the officers interviewed the witnesses. The Captain stated that he was not going to fly with Marman on the flight because he was displaying his underwear in an inappropriate manner and asked for him to be removed. Officers advised the Captain of the elements of trespassing which required a citizen arrest be made. Prior to the citizen arrest being made, numerous requests were made to Marman to cooperate and that he would then be allowed to continue on the flight. The Captain went with officers to ask once more for Marman to pull up his pants and when he refused, the Captain told him to leave the aircraft and that he could not fly on this flight. When the Marman refused again, the Captain placed him under citizen arrest. SFPD then told Marman to get up and walk off the aircraft. He refused numerous commands over a 10 minute period. Finally Marman walked off the aircraft onto the jet way where he resisted arrest and a struggle ensued during the handcuffing procedure. One officer was injured in the scuffle with non life threatening injuries."
